Exactly, don't over-work it. It's what makes it look so remarkably alive. Matisse was obsessed with birds. He could hardly pass the zoo shop without buying yet another bird, because otherwise he would never get it out of his head. We know today that they are relatives of the raptor dinosaurs. /Mats

Thanks Mats and Susan.

I think I managed to get a touch of mischeviousness into his expression.

Thanks Terry, I enjoyed painting him.
Maybe I need to do some more birds before my head gets too big to get out the door, lol.
