Bird study, 1.5 hrs. I love bird they're my most favorite animals! I'm still quite an amateur at painting. I don't have any go to techniques in doing certain textures and making things have form. I also tend to worry about colour a lot because my colour theory is not the strongest. I shall do more studies to improve all these short comings. For now, this is a start.
I'm working on silhouettes so I took the silhouette of the bird reference and painted within the shape. Just one of the thousands of methods to accomplish one thing.
