Cardinal Amongst the Leaves

This one is fresh off the easel... a special picture for my Grannie. I struggled with the reds for a bit, then discovered what combinations of red, blue, green, and yellow create the perfect shadows and highlights. Now, I'll let it sit for a couple days and see if I can spot any places that need touch ups. Then, it will be matted, framed, and sent off it its new home.
