???? Got Talent!!!

A 16 year old daughter of a family friend was telling me she was interested in oil painting,especially painting wildlife.
With no professional training she was told "just paint what you see".
When I sent her a digiscoped photo of a Lesser kestrel,this is what she produced.
I just wondered what you artistic guys thought of her work.

I'm not a fan of wildlife paintings but I would happily summon a necromancer and sell my soul for such a gift.
