Thank you everyone your have really encourage me to try harder. 

Going to watch the owl lesson nolan mentioned has been add to the lessons on the sister site a few times, i watch and absorb , sometimes i watch several times, sometimes. Just the part i’ve got stuck on.  i still have the huge canvas stenciled with an owls face  (last years christmas present) no guide , no paint just a stenciled canvas but i think i have found a picture which looks very much like it on one of the free photo sites. Having said that i want to paint it from scratch so aim to produce my own version of the owl lesson - fingers crossed. Take care

I put the title as ‘when a robin appears a love one is near’ it sounds a bit of a cliche but when i laid mum to rest it started to snow , gentle medium to karge snowflakes thrn afte the service the sun came out and the temperature rose high dnough to be without a coat on the much needed dog walk. It seemed everywhere i eent there was a robin it was uncanny. When i moved to my bungalow nearly 8 years ago i placed an old teapot spout down behind the honeysuckle i planted and i now have a family of robins as tenants each year..

I have gone back to acrylic for my attempt at the robin, i’m still trying to get detailed , i want as much detail as possible. When a Robin puffs up in the cold there are so many colours reflect etc in the plumage, the trick is giving asense of this without going techni-coloured. I messed around using glazing . The paint is a mixture of very cheap and system 3 on water colour cp paper. I never prepared the paper for the acrylic, i just painted straight onto the paper , i was probably wrong to do this.

Wow so they sure do have a special emotional meaning to you. :flowers:
You are off to a good start, well done :clap: :clap: :clap:
What you may want to do is review THIS class. That will show you how to get the detail you are looking for. O0

Hi Liz, in my short lived try at acrylic I painted direct on w/c paper and it seemed to work fine. I think they were system 3 if I remember rightly.

You're off to a great start, and I love the colours you have introduced into his wing.
Perhaps I'll have another go  at acrylics now I'm in cooler climes... just can't seem to put my pastels down long enough!   ;D
Cheers, Val
