This image is from the RIL; thanks to the contributor. I did this with Corel Painter 12. After seeing a you tube video on cloning, I cloned the bird with an oil brush. I then blended out the detail with the just add water blender. I then painted the bird and background with oil brushes (no further cloning). All comments and help are appreciated. Thanks.

Nice colours. You might want to consider sharpening up the bird's face a bit.

the edges are to soft. a more feathered edge.

The bird you painted does not look like a cardinal, not the kind I know anyways. The ones I've always known have a tuft in back of head. Like this.
