This picture is a little on the dark side, I am still getting the hang of photographing acrylic, watercolor on paper is so easy compared to this. I have started putting in the background I will go over it again to lighten and darken some areas. This is just a practice study, I am being brave posting my work in progress as I am still trying to get the hang of acrylics, it is not easy when you are used to doing things the opposite way. I will post more when I get some done, I am also working on another chickadee that I will post the steps for soon. Thanks
