#90 Oil Colors! or The Secretary Bird

"Fantastic headgear" was the assignment, but instead of giving a person an amazing hat, I gave them amazing hair... or feathers. 


So here's some shots of the progress:

Your palette shows a lot about you.

Working with oils again is like riding a bike.  A rusty, decrepit bike. I'm going to have to do lots and lots of practice painting if I want to get the hang of it again!

I looked toward the great Maxfield Parrish  and Phil Hale for how they handled color and form
