Bird Squares Continued

Progress, so far:
Sketch on Paper Copy of Painted Background

Tracing the Sketch

Applying Charcoal to the Back of the Tracing

Transferred Sketches to the Canvases

The Painting!

One down; 3 to go!


  1. Beautiful birds! I love that you are doing a set of four. The canvases have great colors for the backgrounds!

  2. Lovely painting of a cardinal.The grouping will be lovely see when you get them all done.
    Okay, I feel silly asking but why the charcoal on the back of the sketch, just wondering what I'm missing. Tired so that's my excuse : ) Thanks for sharing the progress.

    1. I used the charcoal on the back of the tracing to redraw the birds, transferring the image to the canvas, Annabelle. It was easier to compose the images on the paper copy than to try to do it directly on the 3" canvas. Thanks for your interest!

  3. Beautiful work, I love the cardinal!

  4. Lovely paintings! I love the use of purple as the background for the cardinal. So lovely!

  5. Love the cardinal. Happy PPF, Annette x

  6. I love paintings of birds - whether real or imaginary birds. Those small canvases are great - I can see a group of them hanging

  7. Thank you all for your interest and support!
