Recently, while cleaning out my painting stuff, I saw the book ‘Painting garden birds with Sherry C Nelson’.
I had bought it like 17 years back and carried it with me ever since with the hope of painting some of it, someday.
I decided to paint them this past week and bring closure to a long held wish.
These are oil paint on cardboard, mostly acrylic background with delicate brushwork and detailing.
This is a finch amidst daisies and wooden fence.
Here a wren is perched on an old watering can. Can you see the bug?
This swallow is sitting on a barn window with broken glass and cobweb.
A hummingbird flapping its wings near some fuchsia.
