Winter Chickadee

This is one of my paintings done over last winter.  I enjoy painting birds and other animals.  With every stroke of the brush, you can watch your painting come alive.  It is mesmerizing to me and my surroundings fade away as I commune with the painting.  This is available as a class and we explore a lot of useful techniques that can be used in other paintings such as making and transferring patterns, base coating in acrylic paint and using specialty brushes, like the rake brush, to achieve very realistic effects.    Please contact me if you would be interested in learning to paint birds.
