Happy New Year everyone! Here are my latest projects - practicing my birds this year. There are no cardinals in Oregon, so I decided I should just add one. The other is a painted bunting. The cardinal is layers of acrylic paint on canvas. I used a clear granular gel to create the snowy/frosty effect that is present on the branches. The bunting was done with colored pencils and I used watercolor crayons for the background. Enjoy!
