38 hours in on this birdie. And it's just the head. God help me if I had wanted to paint the whole body, as the underside of the body which shows at the waterline is brindled.

Thanks for the kind words. ;)

Absolutely superb, Artroland. This is a magnificent head portrait and I can well understand why it took you so long.
