"Red Berries (Song Sparrow)"

"Red Berries (Song Sparrow)"

Oil, 12 x 8

Finished this one up yesterday! Presenting "Red Berries (Song Sparrow)," Oil on board measuring 12 x 8. This painting seemed to drag on a little longer than it should have but I am happy with the results. The idea and reference for this painting came from a hike behind my brothers house in northern Virginia several years back. I was in a dense part of the woods, everything seemed very gray and subdued except for this cluster of bright rich red berries.

I love this, the subdued, muted greens of the background contrast beautifully with the reds and your placement of the bird feels just right.

Really nice piece!
