It may be hard to believe but I started this painting on one of the indigo gray background sheets I created for the yoga poses. I thought the texture would create a great backdrop on which to start this painting. At left is a photo from an early stage of this painting. I had applied just a small about of blues and yellows to see how the foliage would look on the gray background. The cardinal was in early stages of development and looked more like a female cardinal than male since I had not yet applied the Permanent Alizarin Red.
