Bird, Bottle, Egg, 6" x 6"

I'm going to tweet, I mean tweak the bird a bit, but since it's been awhile since I've posted a painting, (they're drying, really!), I thought I should introduce this one. It was a bit of a challenge to capture the objects against the dusk. Here I had two lighting effects: cool, outdoor snow and dusk, with warm, indoor, incandescent lighting. I'd like to try a warmer, brighter white on the bird and see if it's more what I had in mind. So, do come again and see what happens. In the meantime your comments and technical suggestions are welcome. I think of this painting as an experiment. Back to the laboratory!

Pam, I love seeing a painting in progress and this one definitely suggests dusk to me. It will be interesting to see how making the bird whiter will bring it forward. The egg and bottle look so delicate! Looking forward to seeing more!
