Poppy Perch

One last little one until I've finished off a couple of commissions. I wanted to try a wider variety of colours (okay, the black and white of a chickadee may not be a wider variety of colour...) on the black gesso to see how they look against the black. My favourite part of this painting... the way the alizarin crimson seems to glow against the black.
