First we drew an outline of the bird on the canvas.
Doesn't look like much does it? Well, I wasn't too sure if was going to be much either.
We then started painting the background.
So now I have started working on the background. It is starting to look a little like something, but I still have my doubts about this painting.
Okay, starting on the bird and now I am thinking I am going to hide this picture under the bed. LOL! But then things start to look a little better as we add some different colors.
This is looking a little better. Then we start adding the branch and pine needles. When we are all done, I finally feel like I have a picture that I am proud of. Here is the final picture.
I just love these places because you can be so far from a good painting, and then it all comes together in the end. Hope you like my Northern Cardinal.
