This painting is based on an image in the RIL; thanks to the contributor. Some birds did fly north but I understand they turned around and flew back to the warmer south. I did this with Corel Painter 12 using mainly oil and acrylic brushes with some impasto brush. I have been experimenting with more abstract background; using complements and repetition trying to keep the painting unified. All help and advice are appreciated. Thanks.

Really cute bird. Just needs a little white dot on the eye.

I agree with Michelle on that one. I like the colors. They are brighter and darker than what you usually do, and they look good. Keep up the good work, I really see improvement in your work!

The comment about the eye needing a highlight I think is good. Nice image though.
