It's a pleasure  ;)  When he tries to hide away in the tree it is that little speck of white that is the give-away.  :2funny:

I am impressed with ALL of us :flowers:  When I go back thru the form and review where we have come from and where we are now, when I see the courage shown by posting those first paintings, and I note the tremendous amount of respect, encouragement and support we give each other, I am blown away!  Here we are, scattered all across this globe having created what us "old hippies"  use to dream about, drinking cheap wine and eating "brownies" baked with.... :D

Dennis and Nolan :thankyou:

I thought I would try placing my bird in sunlight to take a picture to see if it looked like what I see when I look at it.  My Tui , like the bird, changed colors slighty.  Hope they show up better than the first.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Nice work on the tui bird painting, wshortstuff!  It's really nice.

Of course, my teacher is yours/ours and there's no better!

Shortstuff, welldone  :clap: :clap: :clap: Just change the top of the head slightly. The dip by the beak is just a little bit too much. Check against the original photograph. Fix that up and you will have a  O0 painting.
