Birds and berries

tel 02 Jun 2020

I used a wash of sap green for the background but kinda wish i had chosen a darker colour, it was difficult to capture the feathered look of the breasts in particular but i'm sure there is a technique...correct brush and stroke etc, but i gave it a go and overall i am quite pleased with the outcome....took about six hours (two sessions)



They are so cute! May be muddy blue for background so the birds and that peach colors of their breasts would stand out. and the trees too.

Under muddy blue I mean mix of Ultramarin, Phtalo, White and drop of brown in it.
You color scheme is very good. It makes it calmer in the mood. but because green and red are opposite colors it makes berries a bit brighter than the birds but that is totally fine. It is wonderful painting!

Thankyou, i like trying different subjects and as long as i have fun doing them the results are secondary

I like small birds.
The texture of fur is very good .
Well done!
