commissioned painting: ‘Tropical Hoopoe’

I just had the pleasure of painting this beautiful commissioned painting. I had never heard of a Hoopoe bird before but now I know them well! Since Hoopoes are actually pretty brown and don’t have a very tropical look, I decided to add some pinks, reds and oranges!

I had never previously painted birds in detail so it was pretty challenging but rewarding. It measures 40 x 50 cm (16″ x 20″) and is acrylic on canvas.

I hope you love it as much as I do!

Following slideshow shows the painting at various stages of the process!
