I don't often paint subjects from the animal/bird kingdom. I wonder why. Well, here is my attempt to rectify the situation! This is the Western Tanager (painted from a photo reference). I did not get it's pretty head near red enough! Western Tanager's are members of the cardinal family. Despite my struggle with red, I enjoyed painting this guy...(yeah, we know he is a GUY because the female is plain). I can improve this painting later (after it dries). I am very optimistic that I can get him to a point where I know I did him justice!
