As I mentioned elsewhere on this site, I love the contrast of cardinals in winter settings.

I had done several versions of this image in my photorealistic style, but never tried one with this looser approach. I’m actually very happy with the way this little painting turned out. It has all of the reference for form that’s necessary, while still retaining a bit of energy with the strokes, and that lovely contrast between the subdued environment, and the brilliant reds of the bird.
