I really starting to enjoy working with birds for some reason. I guess I enjoy making small feather strokes. :) Tried my best to get the color corrected for online viewing. Pretty close but you know it's always more detailed in person.

Lovely Bruce. I like the simplicity of the painting giving the lovely Cardinal centre stage. Well done. (By the way, I also love painting feathers!!)

He looks so pretty "out on a limb" love how he looks against the sky.
