Birds of Michigan: Mourning Dove

I’m back to painting birds again, this is a mourning dove in golden light, sitting in the grass.

I wish I could my photo here to look like the original painting; it’s a lot more washed out looking than the original on my easel (probably because of glare, etc.). I enjoyed painting this one; I love the variety of colors these beautiful birds have in their feathers.
