Daily Painting - Vermillion Flycatcher

This is my second attempt at a bird this morning. The first one came out awful - and then my fat cat laid on it, so it got all bent. He just saved me the guilt from tossing it out.

What I like about this painting better is that it's much looser. While I did do an initial pencil sketch, my painting lines were done quickly. I did not get lost in the detail. I find that using a dry brush on this cold pressed paper creates enough texture without me breaking out the tiny round brush to get every darn feather.

I want to continue these looser drawings. I like the challenge and the result.
