Post your painting for March Challenge here.

1/ Post only one painting per person. Post only your finished paintings. If you need help, post it in the encourager section.

2/ Do your best to keep your entry as close as possible to the original Challenge photo. Please DO NOT make additions or changes to the subject. We try to maintain a fair and equal field for all entries from beginner to advanced.
Feel free to use the subject photos in your own creation BUT place it in the Encourager section, NOT in the challenge. Thank you for your ongoing support of these challenges.

3/ Any paint medium may be used including watercolour pencil, inktense. If it is not specifically listed, DON'T USE IT! If you are unsure, PM me directly.

4/ When posting your entry, please list type of paint (w/c, oil, acrylic, w/c pencil, inktense) used. Appreciated as it may help someone with less experience.   

5/HAVE FUN!!  :yippee:


FEEL FREE TO CROP THIS PHOTO AND CHANGE THE BACKGROUND ie: Branch instead of hand, foliage etc.[/b]
Cheers, Val

Oh, seems I am the first.  I really found this challenging.  This is done in watercolour.

Mary Lou,

Your bird is quite cute.  I like the background.

Hmmm, maybe I'll try it.

Wow! (s)he's a beauty Mary Lou  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I like the way you fit the branch under the claws and the detail of the twig with leaves that birdie seems to be eyeing ...
