Beautiful sunrise on my girl's 27th birthday!!
The background was underpainted with an orange color and at this time is left to show through...I'm working on what I want to do with the background...and add a swipe or two to the birds and trees and THEN I may call this finished.

These fun birds on a light are in process...I may not have much yet to do, but want to play with it a bit. This pic was taken in San Diego on a very cloudy day...I thought the bird in the middle was hilarious with his feathers all ruffled up like this...so I painted it as it was...
Because the birds were off a bit in the distance, and the sky was very grey I decided to mix two pics...my plan is to make sure the palms stay way back...very muted and little detail, so as to bring the birds to the place of honor they should have...so that is all I got done in between kids finding me in my office to ask a question about this or that...even on our off hours teachers can't hide! HA
But, all in all a good day! HAPPY CREATING...and a reminder that you have til the end of April to submit your paintings from the zoo pics I posted...As a reminder...all you have to do is be a follower, paint from the pics that were posted on MARCH 30 and e-mail it to me at email@example.com and I will add your name to the drawing for one of the contest choices on my sidebar!! Hope you find anything there a little tempting!!
