Re: Sparrows_WIP

Nithya, Sveldstra, Michelle, Jim, Lulu and Jesslyn: Thank you all for your comments. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the painting and, for my part, I hugely enjoyed re-visiting this particular composition. It's had a couple of days now in a "resting" mode and already I have seen a couple of minor points that require attention. I'll tackle these before the pallette dries up completely and post the "finished" article in a few days time.

Re: Sparrows_WIP

This is the final image of the sparrows. I've carried out a couple of tweaks and ideally I perhaps ought to reduce the intensity of the colour on the female's flight feathers. I stopped at that point though because I thought I might get into overworking mode and wreck the final result. You'll perhaps notice that the camera seems to be under control again. The warmer image displayed on my last submission was taken under entirely different lighting conditions so it is not surprising that it looked different.

Re: Sparrows_WIP

Hi Doug, impressive. I just found this thread and it was a delight to watch this painting unfold. I love the added wasp that wasn't there in the original. It adds the right amount of character to the painting.

Re: Sparrows_WIP

Thanks Carol and glad that you enjoyed watching the painting develop. I've started charting the development of a number of paintings recently. The use of a digital camera makes this so easy and provides a useful record of events in case there has to be a post-mortem.
