Lovely work Paulette

Lovely. Maxwell has character.

He's gorgeous. Very real.

Such a gorgeous little Sparrow Paulette so very well drawn!

Gorgeous you have captured the quick bird movement and featheriness.

Beautiful I like the movement caught in the wing and tail feathers.

He is just delightful Paulette .

A lovely piece, stunning in its simplicity. Love the rendering of the wonderfully fluffy down.

Lovely little painting Paulette, very nice
