The Sentinel-Canada Goose
Oil on 7x5 hardboard.
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. The hostess, Lin, provided the photos.
I chose the Canada Goose who looks so alert. Geese elect a guard, or a sentinel, to watch out for predators while the rest of the flock is busy attending to business such as feeding. Quite a responsibility. This guy looks like he's up to the task.
This is oil on a 7x5 hardboard. I tried to push the color and be generous with the paint. I switched brushes from my usual flats to rounds that use to be my mainstay some time ago. Guess what? I like 'em all over again!
