Birds of Michigan: Greeting the Morning

I love finches, because they add color and liveliness to the landscape. This painting catches a finch clinging to a twig as the morning light shines on him.

Original oil painting of a finch on a blade of grass by Yeshua's Child Art
“Greeting the Morning” original oil 11 X 14 canvas wrap

I painted the grays with a mix of ultramarine blue, transparent oxide red, black and titanium white;  I used these colors and added cadmium yellow for the body, as well as burnt sienna and raw umber.
