This painting was inspired by a beautiful photograph shared by Wendy Davis of British Columbia, an amazing photographer of birds and wildlife, who has graciously granted me permission to use her photos as my subject matter.
Below are photos of a painting that is completed (or maybe not quite finished???) with the various stages from start to finish. Here is "Fledgling Sparrow" in acrylic on a 12" square canvas.
I'm thinking I need to do a bit more work around the beak and eye, but it's nearly done....I hope!
The photo for this little sparrow is used by permission from the Paint My Photo site, by member ASCHI from Switzerland, a marvelous bird photographer. Here is the photo I worked from in painting this little sparrow.
