Ok, I haven't put too much paint on yet, but here it is so far.
While painting I have been noticing how beautiful Matt's carving lines are!
I have been studying some of the other decoy painters. (Matt has several books.)
I am intrigued.
It will be an adventure to paint this bird!
Oh ... here is the underneath.
and the top ...
Matt's website, Workingbirdsdecoys, while still under construction, will give you a hint of some of the work that he does.
Going out with the Plein Rein painters tomorrow and
I will report here on how my painting(s) turn out.
Also, if given permission, will post a few other plein-air painters with their work as well!
Cross your fingers for no rain!
