Amy's art in progress.
See regular updates of my progress on each new painting.


I sketched out my cardinal painting today.


I changed the shape of the canvas, as you can see.  I started by painting the background color and sketching out the tree limbs.


I added the birds and changed the color of the branches today.



Today I worked on the color of the branches again and started changing the background color.



Today I worked on the background color more. 



Not long to work today... I changed the girl bird's body some.



I added some darker blue shadows to the sticks and girl bird and I started adding berries today.



I added some highlights to the berries today and changed the shape of the girl bird a bit.
