Another bird for the series...

When I got to this point, I thought I was done, but as I looked at it, I realized that I didn't like the total sky  background. It was lifeless, and oddly drab in a way.  

Unfortunate in many ways, because I've already made up ten of these backgrounds in preparation for more birds. Alas - they'll have to be used for something else. But in the meantime, this bird needed to be cut out and put on a different background.

Shall we audition some? 




although I like the one on the left, there's so much going on back there
 that you can hardly focus on the bird; so, no...


more promising...


too much pink, and not enough going on... so...

Ta da!

and here's a close up of all those teeny tiny feathers...

  1. Lovely Kit - and those teeny tiny feathers :)

  2. Beautiful Kit. Glad to hear there are more to come in this bird series. I look forward to seeing them!

  3. Yes, love the feathers; agree about the background; still bowled over by the artistry of the branch!

  4. Beautiful bird with such lovely colours. The chosen background looks great

  5. As they say in Maine, "He's cunnin". Just love the plumage and the chartreuse bits!!


So, apparently I'm open for business again. :) Say hi if you like!
