I just finished my oil painting of the "Peach Faced Lovebirds" for my client. They are sitting in a beautiful wood turned bowl that he made. These birds are also known as "rosy-faced lovebirds."
You can see the in-progress images of the "lovebirds" on my earlier blog post. I had at first painted in the feet of the birds as if they were clutching the bowl, but we both decided that it was a cuter painting without the big ugly feet that these birds actually have.
The birds were fun to paint and I think their personality came through in the painting. It made me laugh often when I would walk into the studio. I wonder what they were saying?
