This is the latest of one of my “nest” commissions. I love to paint nests and I have painted probably 20+ nests over the last 6 months. My favorite part is incorporating the colors – yellow-greens, burnt sienna, and yellow ochre into the twigs & highlights. This painting is a 12×12, but I have done some as large as an 18×18. During the holidays, I painted 10-12 nest paintings for different customers who were giving them as Christmas gifts.
