Finally! A photo of the Green Jay Painting

(You can click on the photo for a larger version of the picture.)

This colored pencil painting was actually finished a week ago, but I have been waiting for a decent day to get a photograph of it. I prefer to take photos of the artwork outdoors but ever since finishing it has been very dark and overcast or the wind has been blowing like crazy. Today there was nice light and less wind, so I took this outside and got a photo of it. Hope you enjoy!
I'm already at work on redwing blackbirds with roses. I've managed to get some good shots of the Eastern bluebirds this past week, so they will be appearing soon, too.
I was able to work outdoors on this painting several days and enjoyed the great natural light and pleasant weather.
All the best! Linda

  1. Wow, this looks so good - who knows I'll paint my wisteria too (in my backyard) - but that would be next year. Thanks for sharing.
    Are birds in nature your nitch to paint?

  2. Thanks, Jeanette. I like birds and flowers and keep taking pictures of them, so I decided to do a series of them. This is the first of 12 I have scheduled. I don't have wisteria, but took photos at a friends and grew up with it twined around a mesquite tree in our yard.
