New here/oil paintings

Hi everyone.

I'm new here..my name's Kate. I've been painting for a little over a year, I think.

I mostly paint birds, specifically parrots. I'm a multiple parrot owner

I have sold a few through etsy, and I have donated several to an auction where the proceeds go to a Parrot rescue. I really enjoy donating to that.

I would like helpful criticism and advice to take my paintings to the next level.

Thanks



All my previous paintings have my link on this..I will remove this if it is not allowed. I donated all these so am unable to take new photos

Welcome to the AW forum, Kate! A lovely pair of parrots. It would help if you tell us the size and the medium you work in and if possible to add a reference if you would like critique.

Re: New here/oil paintings

Thank you. That was the second one I was trying to upload.

It's not finished by any means. It's a 16x20 canvas done with sennelier oil pastels and oil paint.

Hi Kate, welcome to WetCanvas and to the Animal & Wildlife forum. Glad to have you along

Really like your macaw painting! These birds are so vibrant and lively and you've captured that really well here. Lovely composition too.

I hope you share more of your paintings with us.
