Birds continue to be one of my favorite animals to paint: I feel like I have a chance to paint with strong colors and not fuss about the grays.

Most of the painting was done with brushes (background: large bristle, bird: long mongoose flat), but I painted all the greens in with careful strokes of the palette knife.
