Bird series

I love painting a variety of subjects so I tend to add to my series work as I go along.  I have a bird series I have been working on and can't resist painting a little bird now and then.

"Mama is Mad!"
4 x 6 - oils on canvas panel

Note:  The colors in the background of this little sparrow are using cerulean blue, sap green and this khaki color I had on my palette.  Sometimes when I finish paintings I will combine all the paint together to see what I get.  The result this time was this khaki color green which I mix with the other colors and get this  kind of effect.


  1. You always have such nice dimension in your paintings and isn't it just plain fun to paint those little birds!

  2. Hey Maria, I love birds and they make a lovely subject for paintings!
    Happy Painting.
