Indigo Bunting

Many thanks to Marcel Gauthier, for permission to use his photo for this painting! This is my "I" bird for the A-Z Birds of the World Challenge on www.wetcanvas.com. Comments and critiques welcome!

Thanks, Sam and Andy! I'm wondering if I got the beak a bit too long. In Marcel's photo, the bird is obviously singing. My son says the one I painted just looks angry!

Very nice. You certainly have gotten the iridescent look that these birds have in certain light down pat. Good job!
