A bit of whimsy today. These little black capped chickadees look like they are up to something. They were the stars of a much larger painting I did a while back and it was inspiration for this small daily painting.
I don't usually paint on the weekends but I had a couple hours to spare. It was either that or laundry. Occasionally I will use reference material from sites such as pixabay where artists post pictures for one to use copyright free. They are a nice break from my surroundings and good exercise for my little daily paintings.
drawing and painting horses is always challenging. I may or may not have worked on this one a bit too long. I am finally comfortable with the results but I would like to paint this one again more loosely.
