The office has been closed a lot for the holidays and that gave me the opportunity to put in some serious painting time. The photo above shows the completed first bird, a Crested Auklet.
Now the main bird, a Tufted Puffin is most of the way finished.
A close up of its head, not quite finished.
The other Crested Auklet, also not quite finished.
The three completed birds together and some of the vegetation.
The completed painting, (at least for now). It is 12x24" The actual painting has much more vibrant colors and detail than the photo indicates. The tentative title is, Summer in the Pribilofs.
