Bird in Flight – Value Study in Gouache

Bird in Flight - Krister EideA few days ago a flock of sparrows with their fledglings descended onto our feeder. It was a very noisy and many of the baby birds were just learning to fly so there was a lot of bumping going on. sparrows

Sometimes the camera would catch a mother bird hovering and feeding one of the babies.

The camera really helps me capture birds and other animals mid-movement so I can study them and paint them later.

I’m going to try a paint every day. I’m getting a much better sense of rendering with a brush vs. pencil.
