Great clouds. 

Great birds - like angry birds. (Sort of like road rage in the bird world - imagine someone stealing your parking space - SUCH DRAMA)!

Fabulous wood grain on the post.

You get better with every painting.

After being sick with bronchitis and coughing for over 2 wks I needed to paint something.
So I have  attempted this lesson which i think is a beautiful reference photo that Dennis found for his students. It took a few days as my tablet wouldn't load all the lesson so had to go watch how to paint the 2nd swallow on my husband's computer take notes then go back and  finish it off which I did this afternoon.
Let me know if i need to  make any changes if I can  ::)

TeresaM,

I had started to comment on this yesterday but got sidetracked.  My problem is that I thought the bird was landing on a tr tree branch suspended in the air.  I went to the lesson and looked at the reference photo and then saw that it was really the bird's tail.

LOL - Now I see! 

Lovely painting.Rich color in the blues.
