Thanks Dennis, Nolan and Kathy. So there was already a section for the bird. I must have overlooked it. Good that it is now in the right place.

This was quite a challenging class for me. It was  a lot of fun.
I need to bring the eye out more some I think. The highlights are not showing. but then again it's the lousy camera.

 :heeha: Wow Robynann. The feathers are so life like. I agree that the eye could stand out a little more. With what you have accomplished in the feathering, I'm confident you will get that eye just right.  :clap:

Nice work.  I like the background and the soft fluffy look to the feathers under the back of the wing.

I looked at the other two birds posted and  see that the black line of tiny feather on both sides of the eye is more solid than you have it.  Maybe that might help make your eye more noticeable.

Maybe a bit more dark on the bottom of the beak to make it more in shadow.

I always like to study how others have done a lesson before I start painting it myself.

Thanks Kathy and Mea . I'll fix it right away. Good Idea Mea to look at how others painted a class before I do it.

I think you did a wonderful job on those feathers! So much texture and very realistic! Your log looks a bit overblended on the left side. I have a hard time not over blending my oils. I often create "mud" and then have to let it dry and try again.

Thanks EmmaLee. you know I was looking at that and at first I thought it was the lousy camera but your right. I also have a tendency to overblend
