wow, it may be a relatively old piece of yours, but I really like it a lot...such a dynamism and simplicity...I defintively love the contrast of the colours and values there...and these birds make for fantastic little specks of life...it's interesting, how even the texture and direction of the brushstrokes adds to that dynamic feeling of the painting. You can almost feel the clouds moving...ah, I needed that...that's some additional motivation to get out the watercolours again this weekend
this is my favorite of yours, I enjoy looking at the loose gritty detail, its more interesting and to look at than something thats too rendered and real. Its believable, and I think thats what sets it apart, it shows your unique touch, even more so. very dark and gritty, you handled the figure, and the lighting very well, nice one.
