I’m in the throes of a busy exhibit season. Here is the beginning of a painting for a bird art show that is coming up. I have a week to work this one out. Here’s the bottom of the painting, so far:
Now all I need to do is work out the middle. It will probably involve quite a few green stripes!
I don’t actually know whether the painting will work out or not but I’ve been wanting to paint it for awhile now. Last summer I saw this female at her post. To my surprise, I then spotted her nest! Those are usually hidden pretty far from prying eyes. There was one blueish egg in the nest. So, off to the right will be the nest. Hopefully I’ll be able to weave it all together and it won’t look contrived. I may end up having to paint them on separate canvases but I’m going to try this first.
