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.
