Autumn Magnolia by Nambroth Autumn Magnolia by Nambroth
"Autumn Magnolia" 9"x12" Oil
This painting was one of the first I created in oils this spring, and I think it was the moment I fell in love with the medium. I attempted to capture the fleeting moment I often experience when bird watching; a bit of movement in a shrub, the glimpse of a little bird, then it's gone again! This little Magnolia Warbler (non-breeding plumage) peeked out of my lilac tree for but a moment on an overcast fall day, his plumage nearly the same yellow as some of the foliage.

Lovely work, he's very visible in your work but at the same time we can see how camouflaged he would be if we glimpsed him in real life. The leaves are gorgeous, and so natural-looking. James Audubon must be looking down from heaven when you paint!

I'm especially impressed with the leaves. With seemingly minimal brush strokes you really captured the sort of waxy shine they have. Nice work!
