30 in 30 Challenge - Day 22

The final painting in the Osprey series was a doozy - the angle of the wings was a challenge, as was the lighting of the reference photo - it was a distance shot, so very dark and a bit fuzzy.
I like the background of this one better than the last one though. 
Even though this is the last in this series, I will be painting ospreys again, they are exciting subjects!  And my husband has suggested a second series of Bayside Dock birds!

    1. Thanks, Theresa! He was tough - but I love using complementary colors to make paintings pop - so much more fun than shades of gray! Glad I took your color class!
