Terrific painting Raymond - just enough of everything, I'd say.

Thanks everyone! I'd post more sketches, but I seem to go to painting whenever I start something.

Pileated Woodpecker in Snow

Haha Thanks! I wasn't going to quit posting paintings. I just don't do that many of them. This one is from 3 years ago. I think the color is a bit off, but it's not too far.

Indeed it is. And Pileateds are such striking birds that it would be easy to do something that concentrates strictly on them. This does a wonderful job of instead making them part of a very believable natural scene.

Oh, I absolutely love that! Plenty of movement in the driven snow, and loads of character in the bird's behaviour. Very nice work indeed.

Thank you everyone! It's funny, many people that see this painting don't know which way is right side up!

Hi Raymond,

I'm new to the forum as well, nice to meet you. Very nice work. I think my favorite is the swans, with the great reflections and the rising mist in the background. Very nice feel to all of them, however, and the composition and execution of the yellow warbler is excellent as well.

Work in Progress

This is the start of a painting which will hopefully soon include a Tennessee Warbler. I'm still wanting some more middle and background aspen leaves, though.

I'm curious as to where the Tennessee will show up but I'll be patient and just wait and see.
