Belted Kingfisher Painting In Progress

This is one of my favorite birds and is the latest addition to paintings for the “Birds of Pondicherry” show.  In this image I’ve completed a soft pale wash of color for the background sky and have also applied the first layer of color on the bird and tree top.  I’ve recently discovered the wonder of “masking” and can’t believe I’ve painted this long without it!  I’ve begun working on the details in the feathering of the bird and hope to finish this tomorrow…so stay tuned!
