Here's my rendition of the Two Pheaants. Loved learning how to do the sky like this - and how to get the feathered details painted in an understandable way. Anything I can do to make this better? Thanks for another great class Dennis!
Cheers,
Sharon

Oh, this looks like a fun class, Sharon.  Dennis always picks such colorful ones to do.

It looks well done.  Lots of detail on the pheasants.  Love the blue/green shade on the neck.  Great sky.  Gotta check out how to do that. Looking forward to seeing how you'll incorporate that  technique into your next gallery piece.

Just wonder if the grass needs more contrast. Like maybe another green or yellow-green shade mixed in here and there.

 :thankyou: Mea and Mary Lou! And I'll see about playing around with the grass, Mea - always cautious about fiddling!
Cheers,

Linda,

Your pheasants look great.  Love the muted background, yet the grasses in front stand out nicely.

Good colors.

Maybe it's my eyes, but the beak of the one on the right looks chopped off.  The left one os perfect, though.

Very well done Linda. :clap: :clap: :clap: Darken up the back as they are still too light. Mea, it is because the face is turn away that makes it look chopped of.
