Painting #6 - Female Northern Cardinal in Tree, 15 Degrees F

Painting #7 - Same Female Northern Cardinal, Same Tree...

...again, working loose and fast. It's a great way to study postures.

Your birds get more beautifuler by the number! Love that saucy look on the second painting. The fluffiness of their feathers really shows us 'cold'.

I love your attitude about these sketches - working fast to study body posturing. I guess you have to be fast with birds!

I really like the pure colors in these. And you didn't lose the expression of this cheeky little lady with your loose technique--love them!

I really like how you have captured this Cardinal. She looks very alert and sure of herself. You've done a great job of capturing the tail feathers! I think the second one is my favorite. I'm really amazed at how you can capture these birds!

Love the evident speed and the minimum of details. Nice gesture work in the feathers of both images. Very believable, Kelly, great job!

These are great. They have a Japanese quality about them.
