@The Bird Nutsyou can end the contest now, thanks for the extention (unless someone else plans to enter) 😂I like the backround in this one and the branches better then the actual bird. This is a bit of acrylic underpainting with water mixable oils on top again. Took like 7-9 hours. 1 foot x 1 foot canvas

Thank you! The next bird is the Green-winged Teal, (unless that's been done?) Deadline is April 8, 7pm CST.

Okay, I'm an idiot... I was flipping through my bird book and the photo of the Green Winged Teal looked like a grey duck, with some brown on the wings, a brown head with green behind the eye. Then I looked at a photo online. Holy tiny stripes! How about we change to my second choice, which was the black-throated blue warbler? Same deadline.

Anyone who wants to take a whack at the duck (artistically, of course) will get my undying respect, but not much else...

Alrighty, here's my little drawing (colored pencil on toned paper).  I hope I'm not the only one entering!

Well done! Only a little over an hour to go, so you might be the only one submitting a drawing.

It's a wonderful drawing, and since no one else participated, guess what? You're the winner! Congrats!

Thanks all for the nice comments.  Too bad no one else could participate this time.  How many of you would like to enter the next one?

@God's Child @PalmWarbler @Colton V @Quiscalus quiscula @HamRHead @Connor Cochrane @Seanbirds @Tanager 101 @Sialia sialis @chipperatl @DLecy

Thanks for asking. I'm still too busy otherwise to participate. I recently picked up a few new brushes along with more paint and canvases, but haven't had a chance to work on anything. I did start on the Red Crossbills but havent finished yet...still hope to. I do love looking at other's entries, however. And your Black-throated Blue Warber was amazing! Well done!

Sounds good. I really wanted to do Black-throated Blue Warbler I was just having trouble finding time. I am unsure if I can find time for this one. Maybe I'll try a smaller not so great one.
