This 11" by 14" piece, one of my paintings of birds for birds of America, is of a Scott's Oriole, a bird native to Arizona. This one of my bird paintings is based on a photograph by wildlife photographer Stan Tekiela (in his "Birds of Arizona Field Guide"), who has given me permission to use his bird photos as a basis for my paintings of birds.

The Scott's Oriole is mostly black with some white patches on his back, and has a bright yellow chest. He is perched on a hollow tree trunk, surrounded by grass and a few wild daisies. The sky is blew and it looks to be sometime in the lazy summer.

I basecoated this one of my paintings of birds in dark complementary colors, and then built up the bird's final colors, layer by layer, with thin strokes, which resulted in the feathery, tuft-like texture. The bark of the tree was painted with quick heavy strokes of color to mimic a rough texture.

The canvas has been sprayed with clear acrylic gloss varnish to keep the colors bright, and has been signed by the artist. This one of my paintings of birds ships bubblewrapped flat in a no-bend cardboard box. Please note that a shipping and handling cost will be added at time of payment.
