What a lovely picture William, the tissue works so well as a leafy background.

Beautiful painting, lovely texture William

The background texture really works well and the redstart is beautifully painted.

This is great William,the texture seems to give it a 3D effect.

Beautiful painting William of a beautiful bird, which looks great against the textured background.

Thank you all for your nice comments,I really appreciate them,

I'd hoped that you were back William and then I found this lovely posting from you. It's a beauty and I admire the fact that you've experimented with tissue which such success! It has worked out well and I also like the background colour which compliments the bird. Nice to see you back and looking forward to seeing more of these experiments :)

This has worked so well...just stunning!

Thank you Louise ,Kirstie and Stephen, beware of what you look forward to Louise you may be bored witless by the time the last in the series is shown : ) its nice to see you all spreading your wings a bit and your last posting Stephen is a knockout,

Well well your back William, hope you are in good health.--- I like this -- very much. Lets have you posting more work ----- missed this only saw it by accident

Hello Charles I do hope you are having less trouble with your hands, I don't get to spend as much time on the net as I used to but I try and look up old friends when I can,glad you like my little bird .

Great textures in background (tissue has worked well) Wonderful striking colours too.

I obviously missed this whilst I was away on holiday. Another cracker with lovely vibrant colours especially in his breast. Your robin is a little beauty as well.

William, your bird paintings are fabulous and this one is really special. Love the effect of the tissue and the way the the bird forms part of its surroundings and yet is apart from it.

i think you have a real talent for capturing really realistic birds, you paint them beautifully :-) by the way.......... i have pva glue and kitchen paper, like i would use for papier mache, you use it to create 3D texture for the branches the bird is stood on perhaps?

Sorry I didnt reply earlier but I was in England for most of July without my lap top, but I am thrilled at the reception my bird series has received thank you all,

These are great bird paintings William, and fairly detailed for such a small canvas. The tissue work adds further interest.

Hang on Studio Wall

6x6 inch box canvas, and a little experiment with tissue,
