Thank you Nolan.  :thankyou: There is a glowing field. In the middle of the backround, top of the bird. I think medium (oil) is too much there. Is it correctable? This is my only disappointment.  :'(

Hi comments please.
Painted in acrylics (not oils) on small canvas board.  Background was tricky as it kept streaking so after 2 layers I decided to get a sponge and paint it on this way.  The only thing that I didn't like was the thin layer of paint that was around the edge of the bird when I lifted off the contact which was used to cover the bird. 
Trying to mix the colours that Nolan had was a bit tricky too. Also the colours in this photos are much brighter than in the painting.

I can see you have done a great job here Teresa :clap: :clap: :clap:

I do feel you can go darker on the underside of the belly. This will give you a better rounding effect in that area O0

I started this painting when I painted the lesson on the Blue Tit bird.  The original Pixabay photo had lots of foliage that was distracting so I had to use my artist license to modify it and this is what I can up with. 

I AM STILL HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY LIGHTING. Here is the modified version.  I must have messed up a setting on my camera.

Your bird is beautiful - I can see lot's of detail in the feathers :congrats:

The beak just seems a bit short, maybe check that with the reference, it may just be a short beak bird ;D
