A cheeky robin portrait

A few months ago I got a gift card to Michael's and I decided to buy some canvas'. Now, I wouldn't call myself a painter but the mood does strike every once in a while and I decided that I wanted to try my hand at larger work. I bought several big (well, big for me) canvas'. Here's the first large one completed.

Remember that cheeky robin who kept flying into my windows and pooping on my deck... yeah, that's the bugger.

The painting is acrylic and measures 24" x 36".

Honestly, it was a little bit like torture to do this piece at times. Not used to working on a large scale, timing the painting was difficult and you could totally tell where I left off one day to the next for a while. I think I might have been better off getting a bazillion little canvas' rather than a few large ones. It's going to take me three years to paint all the darn things! That said, I've already got my next painting in mind so it really could not have been all that bad :)
