New chipmunk!

Image

Just finished this one...

A little chickadee work....

Image
The paint was still a little tacky in the background....I am muddying it so I stopped, will wait til all is dry, redo the background and give that a few days to dry this time before I go into doing detail work again. I'm used to my pastels that go on dry! LOL!

Chickadees drawn out....

The story of the new painting....

Image
You MAY think this is an empty canvas....but it is the subtly colored oil paint drying beginning background for "Spring Dance". Twice in the last couple of weeks I have been outside on a mild day and the chickadees seemed to be rejoicing it in; they were flying and fluttering all around me as if to include me in their joy! I need to try and recreate that dance on canvas.....and I've decided to work on a canvas in water-based oil, only my second painting in that medium.

This morning's feathers....

Image

"Eagle Feed"....finished!

Image

Today's last wolf!

Image

Another wolf....

Image

So far today....

Image
Finished two wolf feathers today, have another one in progress.....and added a raven flying and started on the tree in the left of "Eagle Feed". Saturday I bought a new very dark purple pastel and today I had fun putting it into this painting and I just love its effect.
