After my last painting fiasco, I took this one to the sketchbook first. I see a couple of touch ups I need to do at this point. That's the good thing about taking photographs. For example, The back left wing in shadow needs to be a bit longer, simply because of the way the bird is leaning in. Speaking of leaning, the saguaro is leaning a bit to the left - so I guess it's not a conservative saguaro (hah!).
I enjoyed doing this piece based on shapes - cylinders, spheres. It felt really good to paint overall. Here's a few progress shots - including the sketch.
