It is about that time.......the dead of winter when days are short and I get stuck inside more than I want. Well, I got the itch to start painting some and did this Kestrel last night with some titanium white and payne's gray. It was nice to kick back and only worry about using two colors. I actually did this bird for the cover of a birding phamplet which will be in black and white. It was a good warm up piece for me and got me anxious to start on some paintings. I've got some good ideas for my paintings this year.......a bedded buck in snow, strutting turkeys on a steep meadow, and such. I'm going to give the fish a break and concentrate on some mammals instead. Check back in and maybe I'll have something to look at.
