Shorebird by ThreshTheSky Shorebird by ThreshTheSky
Old painting of a species of shorebird called a willet

This is one of several old paintings that I had forgotten about and recently found. I'll be uploading them gradually to avoid bombing your inboxes.

I used some of my own photographs as reference for this painting.

Thanks! I'm glad. I need more practice with feathers. Don't have as much experience as with fur.

Thank you! I think willets are like the kind of song that no one knows the name or artist of but will recognize it if they hear it.

Thanks. :) I remember the beach and everything on it looked really grey the day I took the photos for this painting. Not in a boring or ugly way but in a simple way that looked really nice.

I like the pose and when I look at his eye I see the kindness. Is this normal to see things like that in the eye of the bird :D. The grey tones add positive mood to the drawing. Perfect!
