Snipe study 10" x 12" oil on canvas progression shots

After a visit last week to Titchfield Haven NNR where I was lucky enough to see plenty of Snipe at close quarters I decided to paint a small study with a view to a larger piece to follow in oils if I could get a grip on the colours and cryptic plumage.This is the completed study,which I'm very pleased with and hopefully a larger snipe painting will follow in the not too distant future.

My latest little oil sketch features a Redshank on the Hamble river as the sun is setting and giving a lovely warm glow to the birds plumage.
