Practicing painting, just for fun!
I was inspired to paint this bird (a White-eyed Vireo) after my friend Tammy Hill Parks sent me a beautiful photo taken by Jerry Vanbebber (scroll down to see the photo). Tammy and Mr. Vanbebber are both members of the Oklahoma Ornithological Society, and you can view more beautiful photos at their public Facebook group.
Here's that gorgeous photo I mentioned. It was great to have such a perfect reference photo to work from!
I really enjoy painting birds—I'm sure I'll be painting more of them at some point over the next 100 days!
