10 x 12 Acrylic On Board Alla Prima .. about 2 hours. As said, I apologize to the purist of animal art but I hate detail so this is as detailed as it gets.

Wayne: The Jay is great. I have six feeders in my yard, and I have a lot of Jays visit me. You have captured this one perfect. I love it. Jan

Hi Wayne,
i'm with carol on this....my goodness man!!! and the fence...WOW...

Wayne, this painting is exciting! The repeat of the diagonal with te chain link fence, the bold color, the capture of light. W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L! More detail would have been distracting!

thank you all very much .. I will soften the edges on that one white patch on the tail as it seems to be standing over and not part of.

how much more detail can one get. How much more is indeed needed? This is a wonderful painting.

I am not an animal painting fan but this one ... I keep coming back to it! It is soooooooo goooooooood. I clearly feel the touch of the pro!

All your work is wonderful BTW ...

:clap: Wayne, Very Very NICE! Love the looseness of your painting and ability to capture detail without overdetailing! Wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing this! I THINK I HAVE ANOTHER NEW HERO! :wink2: krysta

Wayne this whole painting is amazing...absolute mastery of tones, and any more detail in the bird would be too much anyway...
LOVE the leaves and the fence!! clap clap

Looks great to me Wayne!

OK Wayne, how'd you get that bird to pose for 2 hours ? :)

Great alla prima painting. There is actually a lot of detail in this painting -- so the purists should be happy. :)

thank you all very much

I'm not sure I like so much attention to something I did with more detail than usual .. might make me think to add more .. Naw, just a crazy thought.

OK Wayne, how'd you get that bird to pose for 2 hours ?
Easy .. told him he could eat all the robins in my back yard and while he was smiling I used a camera :D

A photo from the Morgue File .. great place for free use photos.

Wayne this is an absolutely beautiful painting!!!

I saw blue Jays at Strawberry Wines house when I stayed there last October. They are such beautiful birds and that blue is magnificent!!
