Kelly - Painting 11

12x16 Arches Cold Pressed 140 lb Paper

A Black-bellied Plover foraging on the beach. I warmed up the colors in this bird also...in reality he's a little more gray. I love watching shorebirds digging around in the sand. I saw this guy last spring in Florida. I hope to make it back to Florida this spring!! I really had fun with this one...stylizing the feathers on his back and adding in the sand.

WOW!! Kelly! This is just outstanding! I need to get finished with my Winter scene so I can start painting some birds. I LOVE the colors and details!!

Thanks, Cindy! I can't wait to see some of your birds. You should join the challenge!
