Cuckoo


Cuckoo, mixed media with acrylic, 12 x 12

This one was a challenge because the birdie was mostly in shadow and hiding in the foliage. I loved the fact that it had these splashes of light on it from the sun coming through the dense green cover.

I love the colors in this..there is also a kind of transparency to them that is appealing. Do you see such birds in your area? If you do....lucky!!!!
