Re: European goldfinch

Mikhail,this is beautiful. It is so real. Even the branch on which it sits is perfect. It is as if you have stilled the nature and inserted it ina frame.

Congradulations

Charles

Re: European goldfinch

I love your work. This is beautiful. I use pastel suede mats too It holds the color and easier to do for me.

Re: European goldfinch

Lovely - great textures: bird's wings and the fur I think it's called (?), and the branch. The background really makes the bird pop out.

Re: European goldfinch

I have a question for you Nemon. Do you use a fixative to your final painting?
