If you’ve been following along you’ll know that I’ve never actually painted birds until the last few months… I received my first bird commission at Christmas time and directly after posting that finished piece I received the request for this commission you see here.
Shortly after saying yes I felt intimidated – what was I thinking?!?
This commission was for four separate 12″ x 16″ paintings – my client wanted one bird for each season of the year. The first painting (and even a little bit of the second) was a struggle. However, I fought through and by the time I got to the third piece I started to feel more confident. (Coincidentally the third one – the fall chickadee – is my favourite.)
Anyway, I’m sure it’s much more fun to look through the paintings than to listen to me carry on – thanks for popping by – here’s hoping you enjoy these!
