Little sparrow alla prima - cross posted in wildlife

Iíve bounced around different forums on here, but I recently did an alla prima of a little sparrow and wanted to share. Thanks for looking! C&C if you feel like it 😉.

Lovely brushwork / structure.

I'd like to have a tiny bit more space to the right him, but I guess it's individual...

Very nice style. But I agree with ik345 about the positioning.

Thank you Richard and Gigalot for the compliments!

Ik345 and Tony11214 I appreciate your feedback! I can see what you mean here and I think I agree! Itís a little heavy on that side compared to the left. I hadnít noticed that before. Iíll keep that in mind for the next one.

Budigart Iím a little embarrassed to say that I had to look up that painting! Iím flattered that this reminded you of it. The bird is certainly posed similarly.
