The Handsome Pheasant

Today's offering is another bird that I painted back in January this year,  I love pheasants and see a lot of them round the country lanes where I live.  The colours in the males are just beautiful and I really enjoyed painting this one.


You can see the original photo I used for this on Gary's blog post HERE you just need to scroll down a bit.  I love this photo of Gary's depicting the beautiful detail in this handsome bird's feathers.

That's it - just a quickie from me today,  as I've been browsing other blogs and took longer than I should have! - is it just me or do those word verification things make no sense at all?  It takes me at least 3 tries before I get it right!!!  I'm off to Chester now shopping for school uniforms and birthday presents - I'd rather be painting or up in the hills!

    1. Thanks Ann - the shopping went well although I was exhausted at the end of it - I'm not really into shopping unless it's for art supplies or walking gear!!!
