Painting  birds in oil and watercolor
One of my favorite subjects to paint is birds. There are many sources from
which to gather research material. I rely mainly on books and photos.
I create sketches with colors to complement the birds,
many of whom have startling colors. I use oils for larger paintings
and gouache (opaque watercolor)  for smaller paintings.
I pay absolute strict attention to detail.
I have never met anyone yet who was not fascinated by the action
and liveliness of color in bird paintings.
