Re: Bird of Prey: "The Western Osprey"

Thanks for that tip, David. Just as I thought: this was no fluke, you've got a treasure trove of beautiful work! I particularly like your approach, building the body of the bird up from the application of brush strokes to suggest feathers. Pretty much the opposite of my approach, so food for thought. Wonderful stuff!

Re: Bird of Prey: "The Western Osprey"

Fantastic painting. We have a lot of Osprey here. Wonderful bird to watch dive bombing the fish.
