Double Crested Cormorant by Nambroth Double Crested Cormorant by Nambroth
Sometimes in spite of myself, instead of trying to make the best painting I can... I just want to paint and not care if it's good or not.

This is a for fun "I like to squish paint everywhere" painting of a Double Crested Cormorant. I love their eyes. He's so dreamy.

Acrylic paints on 5" x 7" hardboard.

I'm so glad you liked it! Do you think it looks nicer in person? I think so but I might be biased.

I think it does. You get the texture and gloss of the paint in person, and it seems to have more depth. But I luffs it no matter what!

Awesome! The colors are just gorgeous, and it's such a fun portrait! The eye is really well rendered, and the focus is there, but you have so much too look at--in both subject and background--that I just keep studying.
