I've started on my daughters portrait which I have as a challenge called My Little Jail Bird.
Hopefully I won't ruin it, haha!
Looks like you have a great start Kirsten. Don't let fear get in the way!

Artist Statement
for Kirsten Mellissa
Kirsten MellissaSome ask, why do you paint? I answer, why do you eat? :)
What a fabulous life. I get to live in a world of imagination and color!
I am a self taught artist and just recently began painting after taking a ten year break. I'm a bit rusty but hoping with practice, patience, and the kindness of the Blue Fairy I'll become a real artist :)
I found painting the feathers very hard to do. Can anyone give me some suggestions on how they do it?
Beautiful nearly monochrome painting Daniele...I do not attempt to paint realistically so cannot advise on the feathers, which look excellent to me. Why not... view answer
