After much procrastination on this one, I finally got it back out and started making some headway on it. Tawny frogmouths are frequent visitors to my garden – strange but fascinating.
I have started with the one on the right, building up the layers to achieve the softness of the feathers. The background still needs some brightening as a contrast against the birds.
I’ll post updates as the painting progresses.

What’s been happening…

You might notice from my last blog that I was ill. A chest infection just about wiped me off the planet, but I am pleased to report I am well on the road to recovery now. Just lately, I’ve been busy in the studio, with a couple of new paintings well underway, and this recently completed commission.

Hope you like it!
