Hi everyone. Here is a small piece I did of an American Goldfinch. I think it is fun and I hope you like it also. This is not going for true realism but more for just a nice feeling. The Finch itself is inspired by a photo from the RIL
8" x 10" acrylic

I really like the painting. Your handling of acrylics is remarkable. Strong and delicate.
We've had some of these little fellows near our house lately. I love their colors.

Very charming piece, love the yellow of the bird with the softness of the pink cone flowers, background really well done too. Like a melody the little bird is in tune with the background flowers , that's cool!

Yes it is cool! Soft and misty feeling, looks very good. How did you do that, if I may ask?

Thanks so much for the comments! The atmosphere was created with several layers built up and pushed back with the airbrush.

Love the way you have the background pushed back like that. It really pops out the finch. Really nice piece.
