Flamboyant-Green European Woodpecker

 Close ups

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel.
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Robert was the host and provided a bunch of great photos!

 I have always loved birds ever since I was a young'un! This good looking green European woodpecker was a new species to me.

I enjoyed pushing the color in this one. I really had a good time experimenting with those foreground grasses.

C&C welcome. Thanks for taking a look and commenting!
