Eastern Bluebird, Oil Painting

Eastern Bluebird, Oil Painting, painting by Linda McCoy
About This Painting:
Media: oil
Size: 7 in X 5 in (17.8 cm X 12.7 cm)


These birds seemed to be everywhere except my yard. I waited and waited for one to show up at my feeder, but no. So, out last week at a local park I hadn't been to before and there it was! I was so excited I grabbed my camera and crept as close as I could to take some reference photographs. There are no words for how blue he was, incredible, and then the rust/orange breast feathers! I don't paint birds I haven't actually seen and I work from my own reference drawings and photographs. I waited a long time for this guy, and he was so worth the wait.
