Little Bird

Little Bird 6x6 in. on LaCarte paper
Photo reference for Little Bird. It is obvious from this photo that  much needs to be done to create a painting from it. I will many time choose a photo that leaves much to my imagination, it seems to get my creative juices flowing. Since I have been away from my easel for several months, this was a fun challenge.
Further challenges besides the photo was that being absent from the easel I broke my cardinal rule, NO FIXATIVE. You guessed it , I used fixative and it spattered spots all over so had to go back to square one.  In spite of my mistakes I am happy with the  piece and will try to post on a more regular basis.
