Romantic Northern Flicker by Nambroth Romantic Northern Flicker by Nambroth
A private commission from a local client, who wanted a Northern Flicker (Yellow-Shafted) painted for her husband as a gift this year. I tried to give this piece a somewhat romantic feel/lighting.

My scanner was particularly unkind to this painting, because of the impasto. Alas!

8" x 10" Acrylic on Board.

We have those living in our roof, my room mate and I. They're good upstairs neighbors; very quiet most of the time. If not, we hit the ceiling with a broom and they quiet down.

This is lovely! His eyes are so juicy.

What do you use for the impasto effects? Do you just layer the acrylic or do you splatter it with gesso or something beforehand? It looks awesome.
