Kelly - Painting #10 - English Sparrows in a Paris Alley

Three English Sparrows in a Paris Alley

This painting is doing double-duty because it's part of my "Imaginary Trip to Paris" class I'm taking with Laure. I added the little House Sparrows to this scene because they are common city dwellers and could easily be found in an alleyway. In my mind, I saw these little birds eating bread crusts thrown out for them by a soft-hearted baker--their little chips and bird chatter blending with soft music drifting out of the open back window of the bakery.

I remember that planter well ; ). This is lovely, Kelly. I love the patina on the planter and your little brown guys are perfect here. I like the way that they blend into the scene like they really would in life~~

Very well done, Kelly! Love the embellishment!

Wonderful flowers in that wonderful pot and the little birds are like frosting on the cake. I love how they blend into the scene, just like real birds do.

Kelly, this is so different than the one from last class! Love your take on this one, especially the cobble stones and the variation of color in the planter. Well done!
