Birds are favorite thing of mine to paint. Every one so unique, reflecting the panoply of nature. I painted from a reference photo shared by Kaye Earney. 8″x8″ oil and acrylic on cradled wood board. Available in my Etsy shop.
I attempted to paint an avocado many years ago, and I completely failed. The gentle indent of shadow, the smooth gloss of the pit, and the rich texture of the rind…I think I got it right this time. I painted from a reference photo shared by Ruth Edwards. 8″x8″ oil and acrylic cradled wood board. Available here.
