Kingfisher oil painting by Ned-The-Hat Kingfisher oil painting by Ned-The-Hat
My first attempt at oil painting, on prepared linen canvas. A beautiful kingfisher perched on a rock with a fish for lunch.
This has taken months to finish and I am reasonably happy with the outcome, but hopefully will improve over time.
I used Winsor and Newton artists oils and under painted with burnt sienna , which can be seen poking through the green background in places. It was glazed finally to dull the background down a bit and bring the kingfisher to the front

Thanks, I struggled with some of the colours, in particular the blue, I'm not the best paint mixer yet, but overall they are close enough.

Thank you, I'm getting lessons at the moment, but they are expensive, so my progress is slow and painful, but this is my one and only oil painting finished ever!
