Painting birds

I told myself that I wouldn't be doing any more paintings but last night I was sucked back in. There's something about painting that I find rather meditative. It soothes me and clears my mind.

Birds have always been one of my favourite subjects. I'm not quite sure why I like painting them so much. Perhaps because they're usually skittish but cheeky... a bit like me.

Anywho, here's a little acrylic on canvas Red Breasted Nuthatch I finished up. He's rather sweet and small, measuring just a smidge over 4.5" x 7".

He's available here.
