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
