The Chief

The Chief

This one is giving us a stare John lovely painting

John this is lovely, I agree with Dennis

beautiful bird, you must be patient waiting to photograph these birds. Well captured in oils.

I bet it does John but well worth the wait! A beautiful bird beautifully captured. [ perhaps captured is the wrong word to use John as that's exactly what used to happen to them - literally! ]

Wonderful shot and beautifully painted

Thank you Dennis, Jenny, Carole. Russell and Patricia. It takes about 100 shots to get a decent image, even then it will not be sharp. But enjoy the challenge.

John do not get me wrong, the Vulcan two above and this bird have something in common. Is it the self confidence, the wings......?

Great painting with gorgeous vibrant colours John.

It feels as though the bird is flying right at you.

Hang on Studio Wall

Oil on canvas board. 10 X 8 inches. I use my own reference photography. It takes many hours gathering the shots I need.
