Yesterday my day was pretty successful.I painted two little paintings,went skiing in the morning and took my daughter ice skating in the afternoon.I ace skated too and that was my second time in my life.I still had hard time standing on my feet but I did not fall.Yey!
Today I am posting only one of my paintings and tomorrow if I have access to the computer I am going to post the other.
This little fellow was painted using my own reference photo.We have two bird feeders in our yard and we enjoy watching the birds coming to peck seeds every day.I like to take pictures of them or sketch them,so I have tons of reference material.The hardest thing is to take a picture of a woodpecker.They are so sensitive and fast.
I painted the cardinal on a canvas board 5x7 big.It was a great fun to paint it.

It looks it was easy but it was not at all. It took me longer than I expected to.I had a lot of doubts about this painting.That's way I put it for a discussion on the website of the Wet Canvas.My fellow artists helped me with valuable advice,pointed to the weak spots of my painting and helped me with the name of the flower as well. I did not have any clue what it was.I just took the picture at a flower business because it was so pretty and was begging to be painted.I know it is not the way I wanted it to be but still it was a good learning experience.
