A Place in the Sun
Wild Turkey, 24" x 18" Oil on Canvas
This is one of the best executed paintings I think I've done so far. It really began as an experiment on color and brushwork and the more I worked on this piece the more I enjoyed it. This Rio is simply enjoying his place in the sun, strutting down a brushy treeline mid-morning. I really got into painting the warm and cool contrast between the sunlight ground and the shadow cast by the bird, and overall I'm proud of the way he turned out.
