Many thanks to bird breeder Linda Brandt for the reference image of three of her baby birds on a swing! We lovebird owners know how they adore their swings, so I was tickled to see this image of three climbing on board together. I haven't painted any birds for awhile, so I'm due. This one was great fun.

My palette for this painting:
Cadmium yellow lemon
Quinacridone Rose (Permanent Rose)
Ultramarine Blue Deep
Burnt Sienna
Titanium White

So the colors. You really captured the 'feel' of downy baby birds.

I love this! I can just feel their little toes, and the way they move their heads, climb with their beaks... I love the colors, and the soft feel. Cuddly, as Lori says. Thanks!
