Chickadee, the Maine State Bird

Chickadee, the Maine State Bird - student project

Chickadee, the Maine State Bird - image 1 - student projectSince I live in Maine, I was happy to see our state bird used in this class. I used the pine cones in this painting as they are our Maine state flower.  I'm anxious to do another bird painting right away to anchor down these techniques.  I think I'll do a bluebird as this is my husband's favorite bird.

 

Whoops! Once I saw the colors in this purple finch, all thoughts of bluebirds went right out the window.Chickadee, the Maine State Bird - image 2 - student project
