Rainbow Birds: Blue

Art Prints
The Eastern Bluebird is the penultimate painting in the Rainbow Birds series. I came up with the idea for this series 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 of the actual birds, then worked at a composition featuring them all together. The series will feature the following song birds: cardinal, baltimore oriole, gold finch, ruby-throated hummingbird, eastern bluebird, indigo bunting, and purple martin.

The indigo bunting and purple martin will be featured in the next and final piece in the series.

Great for anyone who loves birds and the beauty of nature! The series make a great set of greeting cards. Get prints and greeting cards at my Fine Art America page.
