Work In Progress - Stage 4
oil on 11" x 14" panel
There have been obligations to take care of, so I finally got back to working today on this oil painting of the Red-crested or Brazilian Cardinal. Reality check: there is more to life than painting everyday :-) There is much refining work to be done on his feathers, as well as other areas of the painting. In an earlier post I explained how I photographed this fellow at Bellows Beach on Oahu, as he was busy nibbling on something inside this fallen coconut.
Below is a video (not mine) of these cardinals on the island of Kauai. Beautiful and relaxing to watch !
