Tree Sparrow Study

Tree Sparrow Study, Acrylic on  Mat Board, 4"x7", NFS
Day eleven of the 30 in 30 Challenge.  I thought I would try a tree sparrow today.  This one is on a scrap of mat board.  I was working on proportions and color.  I plan to try another one on gessoboard - maybe tomorrow.  I like paintings of birds because when you get them right, they have a lot of personality.

I love watching the birds in our yard.  We have a bunch of feeders near our apple trees - a combination that seems to attract a lot of different kinds of birds.
