Waxwing Rhapsody by TempestErika Waxwing Rhapsody by TempestErika
Acrylic on canvas.
36 x 60 inches.
Symphony Series

Cedar waxwings. The newest (and biggest) painting in this series. I hightened the colours on the birds for this one. In reality they are grey with very little blue, but hey, artists perogative. ;)

The back ground turned out particularily well in this one.

This is wonderful, until you told us the colors were heightened, had no idea, they look real, as though some may take flight at any moment! Love that! :blowkiss::glomp:

You got some create trompe-l'oeil going on... This almost looks like a collage with that textured background. The detail is fantastic!
