Blue Bird Diptch

Hey Friends,  This is the left side of a dyptch.  I'll post the right side tomorrow.  I was at my youngest daughters house this summer, actually spring, because that's when I snapped a 100 photos of a large old lilac in the back yard.  There were some birds, and plenty of Bee's but not a Blue Bird. 
I believe what was really there was a Titmouse, so I just used his body shape for the BB.

I really enjoyed painting these.  I used the "YES" canvas and very fluid acrylics.  It felt very much like watercolor.  The Yes canvas is very smooth and it claimed to be for all fluid media so I gave it a try and love it...I've been using it for a long time with acrylics and oils so now ya know you can use it like watercolor paper too!  I have never cared for the texture of canvas so Yes was a great find.
Happy Trails
Travel Well
