This is an illustration of a stunning Blue Jay. The original painting of this magnificent bird was done without a background, I added the watercolor background separately later. I’d never painted a bird before this, but then I saw a nature program about the beautiful Blue Jay and decided to paint one. The shades of blue on the bird are exquisite, and the spread of the tail feathers are wonderful, it was a great experience creating this painting. I would like to paint more birds in the future, different types of birds from all around the world.
