Tawny frogmouth painting

Posted: June 21, 2009 in art, birds, pastels, wildlife

The tawnys are really starting to take shape now, I still have a fair bit of work to do on the birds, but I wanted to make a start on the background. The first layer of leaves is down, with only a few more to add to the far background. The bird on the left is still relatively untouched, so I will focus more on that this week.

Had a bit of a play around in the studio this morning experimenting with a few different pastels. These are the results!

Tawny Frogmouth Progress

The tawnys are progressing slowly, but so far I am happy with how they are coming together. Today I plan on making a start with the background so I can get a better feel for the lighting and shade.
