Some recent paintings

Been admiring the work on the forum, and wanted to chip in with some contributions of my own. These are all paintings I have done from reference photos I've taken. Many times if the photo doesn't come out well for whatever reason, but I like the pose of the bird or some unique action, I try to turn them into paintings. Hope you enjoy them.

these are great, your handling of the watercolor medium is great, you must do a lot of layering. Great detail.

Great job on these. I really like the Song Sparrow, singing away in its territory.
