Beautiful work! Love the way you have done the feathers or rather the whole bird!

Glad you went with it Paulette this is a pure delight. Such detail and texture, beautiful....even if he looks like an unmade bed.....and not because of your painting, he must be moulting

Fantastic work Paulette!

Very good Paulette. I love the way that you have rendered the feathers.

I love this. It's ruffled feathers give an interesting and appealing appearance Beautiful drawing

Absolutely stunning. Lovely little bird, love the way you've done its feathers.

I don't know why you've avoided painting birds Paulette this is lovely, I love the rumpled feathers they are brilliant.

The colours and ruffled feathers are lovely.

Pastel pencils on Strathmore toned paper. Sometimes things just happen in art.

First it was a pigeon feather and then two magpie feathers and then I joined a facebook group for birds and bird art, saw this photo and fell in love. The photographer who took the picture has since recommended a camera and now I'm hooked. For the past week I have been taking photo after photo of birds. Sometimes you just have to go with it :)
