On the Lighter Side - Bird #58

A second version of the painting I finished the other day... this time a lighter background and the resulting image is completely different.  I don't know which one is my favourite.  All the colours used between the two paintings are the same (including the slight touch of white to recapture a couple of lost highlights).

Delightful! Madelaine, you "capture" birds so very well.

Both versions are beautiful but I think this one is my favorite. There's an added "softness" to this that to me helps denote how fragile these little guys can be.
