featured painting: Yellow-Tufted Woodpecker Study, 14" X 13.5", acrylic
This painting resulted from my two-month research trip to Ecuador, South America. The painting got its spark while I was planning my composition for a larger painting of these woodpeckers. I liked two of my drawings and thus did two paintings of the subject, each with a different goal in mind. Here I wanted to focus on the shadow and the birds.
