Cape Glossy Starling

Oil Painting Bir Art Fowl Wildlife Exotic

Oil on canvas hardboard, 6" x 8".

This bird is a glossy starling and is a South African native.  It was a playful painting for me.  The  striking blue-green metallic feathers along with his yellow eyes were intriguing.  And the best part was his quirky shadow!  These starlings are frequent visitors to gardens and feeders where they live.

They truly are beautiful birds. I love the way you have managed to get the black... peacock colours so well.
