This is an older painting from several months ago that was never posted. He’s actually the first bird of the sort that I’ve been doing lately. I was so pleased with him; it gave me the push to try the other birds.
He’s a little larger than 5 x 7 and painted only with Quinacridone Gold, Indigo, and Quinacridone Red. The green in the tail is from the Quin. Gold and Indigo mixed – I love that color every time it appears!
His face is sharpened with a touch of Prismacolor colored pencil that looks like Tuscan Red and Goldenrod. I didn’t write them down and don’t remember now which ones they were.
I hope you like him – he was a first of a kind!
