I'm having a hard time capturing the colours correctly in this painting for some reason. Its a little too red, the sky should be a tad more blue. I'll have to try taking a photo tomorrow in natural light and skip the scanner.
I thought I would get a little head start on the Christmas themed painting this year. Last year I didn't finish my holiday card painting until the middle on November which meant I was completely rushed trying to get my cards out. Not this year. Yah! Now, I can do my cards in a completely non rushed fashion with a nice hot cup of coffee.
Another chickadee painting... Having fun painting these guys. It's been a while since I have painted much and these guys are always fun to get back into the mode of painting. I like to think of them as my muse.
I started this one quite some time ago.... So long ago, I actually can't remember when I started it. Well, tonight, this little guy is finished, and varnished. I also added a touch of glass bead medium to the leaves and flower buds... Kinda like the dew first thing in the morning.
I think I am finished. I put the final details in last night and put my initials on this morning. Overall, I am really happy with the way this turned out and with how long it took me..... less than a month! Now, just need to let it dry and then varnish.
