Bluebird Study by Nambroth Bluebird Study by Nambroth
I had some leftover paint on my palette from my canvasbacks painting, and didn't want it to go to waste. The leftover colors were appropriate for a bluebird study, so that's what transpired!
8" x 10", acrylic.
Thanks goes out to Richard Hefner, whose creative commons photo helped me with the pose. www.flickr.com/photos/12856828…

The complementary colors really make this stand out. It works well. I like the contrast of the detail of the bird next to the abstract background.

Gosh, the details on your bid are fantastic. And this isn't all that large, either. It's really impressive, Nambroth. The colour contrast with the background is nice, as well, which is clearly the main purpose you had for the background.

You remind me that I really should start hoarding some more references in general, and do a couple fresh wing studies.

Such a wonderful contrast between the rough brown strokes in the background and the delicate little bird. The colours make the bird stand out so well, what a lovely piece! So much detail :)
