 :yippee: It is going to be fun to paint the bird! I saw a Bee-eater in Italy once. They are rather large colourfull birds. European birds usually don't have too much colour. The Bee-eater doesn't visit my parts of Europe, Sweden. :(  See you later folks! :painting:

Jennylynn, You are fast on the draw.  Never even looked up at the chat box, for  fear of losing pace with Dennis.  HOW DOES HE DO IT?  I did mine on Red Canson Rough side because I don't see myself ever using this red paper given to me but good for practice, thus the red undertones.

Here is pnewcomer1's painting.  Great job and a nice light to it.  Hope you don't mind that I posted it for you.  The way I do it is to click on the title of your painting in the gallery and under it find the BBC embed code.  Copy and Paste that number into the Forum Reply.  You can then click Preview before posting to be sure it looks right!!
