This was my first acrylic venture,the reason to paint this was  the photograph,It was very inspiring. Painting animal images are real pleasure ,though I do not call myself an animal enthusiasist, one of the subjects that attracts me is of course animal .In this painting I've focussed more on his fur .It required lot of variations in colour .The foreground leaves and plants were given equal attention too.
This piece of art was completed in june 2007,I saved this painting for my daughter.

bluejay splendour

This is bluejay splendour,done on 16 X 20  canvas . I used acrylics , for easy use.This painting takes me back, down memory lane to those days when I used to watch bluejays tweeting through my woodlake apartment window  in Silver Spring,  Maryland.I could see them during fall and spring.Their vibrant variations in blue on their body ,is very fascinating,especially when they flap their wings.It was really hard to capture them on a camera and I always wished to paint 'em.So here it is,my long awaited wish .

To paint this first I sketched the picture, then I painted the background ,next I did the leaves  and then the wooden rims,finally the bluejays.
