I am starting another group of paintings on exotic and other hardwoods like cherry and maple. The secret to seeing the wood is a clear gesso. It allows the wood to be painted on while seeing some of the wood grain underneath. Look for another blog post with some of the new paintings soon!
Which birds do you want me to paint? I paint a lot of North American birds because it's my home. But I love painting many birds from all over the world. I love songbirds because they are so cute and fat and sweet. I've been painting more kinds of birds like geese, owls, seabirds and more. I'm opened to suggestions and would love to hear from you!
