Ruffed Grouse on Truck Hood..oil painting

Played with this earlier today with placement of a couple ruffed
grouse, this one painted on the hood of the old 1947
Ford truck...















...then after working up some sketches, decided to paint the
distant left bird like this...

















not too detailed, not too prominent...there, but not
intending to gather too much attention. Should help
balance asymmetry better...and interest.


And then...here is the end of the 3rd session...with some
work in the foreground and truck yet to finish-

Looks great Dad! This is a cool truck, a ford . . . . hmmmmm? I remember a certain blue ford that we had that might make a good painting! :)
