Birds on the Wall w/ Tim Gagnon: White Breasted Nuthatch

wbns

Here is my attempt at sketching and outlining the second bird in my lesson. 

white breasted nuthatch

A wash of my version of burnt sienna is applied to the background.  After a couple hours of layering the paint here is my result. Life has taken over my time and I hope to be able to finish the background this week. 

 

You can get an idea of that the birds are to look like and how the lesson looks by viewing Tim’s youtube channel.

Thanks for viewing!

After 4 hours, this is my result.  I think I used too much pressure while applying the paint. My paint is probably too thick  and  I have no idea how to really hold my brush and …..well, the rest of it.

I am pretty happy with my first little birdie.

My next victim is the White Breasted Nuthatch.  Thanks for viewing and  your support.

How exciting!

Wow, yesterday I bought the DVD version of a painting lesson from Gagnon Studios. I went back today to look at some things on the site and to my surprise I have access to the online lesson also. How awesome it that??? Thanks Tim!
