I found this wonder tutorial for hand-painting chickadees at “Flower Patch Farmhouse” amongst all of the other great tutorials and video’s and I decided to give it a try,and painted Chickadees on some wood.
This is the first bird, and nest that I have painted. When I had my craft booth years ago, I painted whimsical animals, so painting a real life bird is new to me.
I used a block of wood that I first stained, then dry brushed some white acrylic paint on. Then I drew off, and painted the tree limb, and nest. Once dry I added the birds.
I guess it’s not to bad for my first try of painted Chickadees, but I’m just not real happy with it. Pamela made it look so much easier in her tutorial.
What do you think?
