untitled - Portrait of a Northern Wheatear

I started a new painting this morning... having fun with the new Khadi paper and going for a little more of a 'loose' background with lots of texture.

Lil'Bunting

I found this painting particularly difficult to get an accurate scan of for some reason, so I am posting a picture of it from my camera.... this is a pretty good likeness to the actual colours of the bird and of the paper.  The Kahdi paper has some absolutely wonderful texture to it... but that also makes is somewhat tricky to paint on.  Wet-on-wet washes, if done too many times, mucks up the texture so I had to be extra careful not too do too many.  Which is OK since the texture makes for some wonder dry brush textures.

untitled - Kahdi paper WIP 2

A quick little update tonight... almost finished the bird and working on the wood stick he is sitting on.  I'm having some difficulties with my scanner getting a good picture of the painting so the colours may be off a little below.
