Rainbow Birds: Red and Orange

Photography Prints
This painting is part of a series developed from an experiment with pouring paint. I came up with the idea while watching the birds at the feeder outside my window. I noticed one day that the feeder attracted birds of all the colors of the rainbow. I thought, how amazingly beautiful nature is!
I completed a series of individual studies of each of the birds, drawn and painted to scale, then worked out a composition featuring them all together. The final painting will feature all the birds together, to be completed in my usual fresco style: ink on clayboard. The final piece will be 12×24 inches.
The watercolor pieces (like the one shown here) are slightly different in style than the final large piece, so I believe the whole series could be collected. Great for anyone who loves birds and the beauty of nature! You can view different print options at the Rainbow Birds: Red and Orange page. The next piece will feature Yellow and Green.
