Cedarwax Wing

This guys was lots of fun to paint and I'm really happy with how the colours turned out. I used a combination of transparent red earth, cadmium orange, hansa yellow light, and cadmium yellow medium for the body of the bird. There was also a touch of sap green here and there for some of the shadows and titanium-zinc white for the highlights.
