Ruffed Grouse Oil Painting...progress

here after today...wish I had more time to paint.
Teaching's been taking up much of it...

a few closeups...trying to keep background soft and thin layers,
and nearer foliage thicker and carefully laid on...

Progress steps of a ruffed grouse painting I'm working on,
putting yellow-greens, yellows, and pinks into the sky..
as paint dabs, and will build that up more.
I am approaching the work of the wings a bit more cautiously,
as I want to suggest movement...a slight blur or soft focus.

Here is a closeup of some brush and color work...and clicking on
the images will bring up a larger image of both images here.
