Finally, I am beginning to paint again! This summer has been one that I did not focus on my art for some reason. Maybe I just needed a break. Whatever the reason I am glad to be back to the old drawing board!
This is a color study of my next painting. I saw the reference photo of this guy and fell in love with all those feathers! I am trying to decide whether to make him brilliant like the attached photo or go with the more subdued colors in the reference photo.
