“Waiting for Summer” – Little Bird Portrait of Female Scarlet Robin
Oil on Canvas Board
7 x 5 x .2 in, approx.
While several species of Australian robins feature reddish feathering on their breasts, the plumage of the Scarlet Robin is particularly vivid. And I had to paint her in somewhat brighter colors because not many female birds are brighter colored than their male counterparts.
The strokes are thicker and fluid to capture the sense of urgency and beauty of the creature.
She is perched on the dry branches of treetop that will turn all green soon with the arrival of Spring.
