Waiting for the Seed

"Glad you have seen some bluebirds, Charles.  I have rarely seen one in New York. Yesterday we saw 6 Goldfinches at our feeder - 3 pairs.  They are back!"

Waiting for the Seed

"My understanding is that goldfinches tend to stay in flocks until later in the season when they pair off for breeding - around the time the thistles are in bloom.  Have not seen any this year either.  The new digs in NC had bluebirds…"

Porto - Puente de Don Luis

"This is lovely, Charles.  I like the crisp clouds on the horizon and the orange of the rocks against the blues of the water. I have tried painting rocks under water and it is difficult.  I do see the effect that Ken is referring to and…"

Waiting for the Seed

"Thanks for your comments, Ken.  We do have Goldfinches here and they are one of my favorite birds to watch.  They seem to love water in puddles and birdbathes and we see them in the summer from our deck.  I haven't spotted one…"

"Yes, Charles - I agree.  This was one of those quick paintings from a photo that just sort of poured out.  It felt great just painting for the sake of painting but I could see at the end that the choice of background color was not the best…"

Waiting for the Seed

"Your rendering of rhe Goldfinch and flower are excellent.  Perhaps your background might be a different color or value to better highlight your beautiful painting of the bird."

Waiting for the Seed

Acrylics, 8 x 10 CanvasI was itching to paint a bird this spring and I do love Goldfinches.I am told that Goldfinches wait for thistles to go to seed before hatching their young as they feed them regurgitated thistle seeds. It is theorized that they…

Thank you, Sarah - I have been waiting for someone to take Art to task over this but did not feel it was my place to do so.  Very nicely handled!

Thanks Sarah for your comment on my Red Gate painting. I did spray the back of the paper, but unfortunately for some reason it created more, tighter ripples, that I can't seem to get out. Will try doing another dampening of the back on placing between paper and load with big books to help flatten, maybe that will work. I think it is because it is not just watercolour paper, but Canvas paper.
