Christmas Bird


6"X 6"
Ampersand Gessobord
This is really late being listed and for that matter painted!  I had many things going on and I am just now trying to finish a painting for Day 19.  The little bird is a Christmas ornament and so is the silver glass ball. The bird is gold and sparkly.  I tried to capture some of the sparkle and am not sure if it translated.  The wings are gossamer with a very fine light color netting.  It was fun to paint.  I have tried unsuccessfully many times.  This time I understood value much better as well as color.  It is fun to try new things.  The 30 in 30 challenge has for some reason left me more able to experiment.  This painting can be found here.
