The perfect perch was inspired by a split second photograph of a male Downy Woodpecker. This little guy flew in and perched on this dead wood, had a quick one second look at me, and then flew off into the deep woods. The encounter was so quick I did not think I got the shot of him and was very surprised to find that I did in fact get a great shot of him! The dynamic pose of him ready to launch himself into flight instantly attracted me to paint the setting. A few minor changes, a more interesting background, and we were in business.
In this tutorial we will learn to paint detailed birds, wood textures, grasses and how to defused backgrounds. Techniques include stippling, dry brush spattering and a quick demo of airbrush. As an added element also learn how to rework a background to enhance the painting.
