View Full Version : Bluebird

this is my second bird. I sketched it from Sherry C. Nelson's "Garden birds". But because there are no bluebirds in Austria, I changed the pattern to a robin. Hope it has worked. C + C welcome.

This is very pretty. Are you enjoying yourself painting birds - it certainly looks that way.

I am not only enjoying painting birds, I much more enjoy watching birds like all other animals. But in the moment in it's easier to paint birds than my favourite animal - the cat. I am the "tin opener" of a wonderful red cat.
Thanks for looking to all.

:wave: Hi Brigitte!
There are some really wonderful things happening here! I love the robin and the details you've included - great feathers and modeling of the bird itself. The flowers and leaves are also well done. It's a lovely painting! :D

I love the delicacy of this!
I'd like to see a darker & a lighter side to the post to give it more roundedness. That would also help to define the bird. It's very pretty and delicately painted. The flowers and the bird are very nicely done.

I love the design and composition,beautifully painted,I also suggest some stronger values on the post would make that recede a little and display the robin better. I'd also like to see a tiny highlight on his shiny beak.
Please realise we all visualise art so differently, and these are merely my opinions.I too love watching and painting birds.
I really miss my Uk garden robins, but have a garden full of Aussie birds here so won't complain, as I've experienced the best of both worlds.
what a charming composition! the bird is beautifully painted and supported by the post and flowers
