Townsend's Warbler by Nambroth Townsend's Warbler by Nambroth
On a trip to the West Coast of the US this year, I encountered a very friendly Townsend's Warbler. This little fellow followed me around as I took photos of ducks and at one point was perching on and around my feet. I was really enamored with him and knew I had to paint his portrait!

This painting makes use of moderate impasto for three-dimensional effects.

Acrylic on 7" x 5" hardboard.

This piece is for sale: [link]
