Kelly - Painting 84

Painting 84
Oil pastel
12x16 Arches Cold Pressed 140 Lb Paper

I painted this Hooded Warbler on 12x16 paper, forgetting my scanner can only handle 9x12! So...a good deal of the background has been cut off. Matty and I found this fellow in the deep woods this summer. He came in very close for the camera, but I lost the memory card that held the captures! I kept thinking I would create him from my memory...but never put in the effort. Finally, the challenge helped me do it. These little summertime warblers are so beautiful. I can never get enough of them.

This one is especially perky! I especially like how some edges blend into the background and others help him pop out.
