Warbler ~ On the easel

This 5" x 5" acrylic on board of a Yellow-Rumped Warbler (Dendroica coronata) is in progress.  I'm hoping to complete this 
painting by Sunday.    

The background was air brushed in.  The subject and branch then
drawn and white paint applied to subject area.  I like painting on a white background so as not to end up with a muddy flat looking subject.

Also, I find it takes less layering to cover the under paint and get on 
with the details.  Always the fun part...

This original will be available at the San Bernardino County Museum
Wildlife Art Festival (dates and times listed below).

If time permits, I will also start work on a 5" x 5" acrylic on board,
Eastern Grey Squirrel.    :- )

Brenda, your yellow-rumped warbler on the easel will be fantastic when you finish; it is already wonderful and lovely. I enjoy your work very much.
