Beautiful, love all the rich golden tones.
It came out beautifully! Very nice! Thanks for sharing your process.
I’m not much of an authority on art and painting (I know pretty much nothing), but this is really impressive.
It’s a wonderful painting Anita! I love the way you’ve captured the light. I’ve enjoyed watching the painting come to life!
Wow, Anita! Adding the second bird made all the difference in the world (well, it did for me :) ): all of a sudden, the whole painting just…lives.
Just when I think your blog could not possibly get any better – I see this painting and I’m blown away. WOW is right!! Way too much amazingly gorgeous things going on here. First, I’m soo glad you posted the detail shots b/c I was so taken w/the gold finches that I didn’t at first even see your treatment of the stormy sky. That looks unbelievable…what a talent you have, Anita! I can only imagine how great this piece looks in-person. Stellar!!
It is a birds world… Nice to see the process to a majestic great paintings. I can even hear them tweeting..great.
Hi Anita. I’ve just nominated you for the Reality Blog Award. Please feel free to accept or decline as I know these things take time that we can’t all spare. Either way, I enjoy your blog and wanted to share it with a few others too. Thanks.
It’s Beautiful :)
I love it: great composition, color contrast and the position of the lower bird bending over introduces dynamism to your painting. Just beautiful :-)
That is beautiful.
Wow, that is gorgeous! I would love to learn to watercolor paint. :-)
Thank you very much, Mabel. I’ve tried all kinds of painting media and in my opinion, watercolor is the most difficult. I chose oils — which to me are the easiest — you can always correct mistakes easily in oils. Good luck and I hope you do try painting in watercolors : )
Thank you so much for that tip. I’ll explore oils too then. Appreciated. :)
This is tremendous, i just love the colors and composition!
Thank you very much. I appreciate your comments.
