Day 216: I’m enjoying this painting

The birds have progressed. The Dompap is mostly complete, it still probably needs detail work and some more highlighting! …But I’ve actually started for real on the greenfinch, working from it’s head and downwards, and just trying to block in more shades where I think they seem appropriate.
This is a way harder bird to draw because it’s coat is so.. Well, lacking in contrast. It’s light greens that cross into yellow space, or gray greens, or gray grays. I think I might need to get a bit creative on the colour to texture it properly.

But I am here to give a more detailed look! Have a gaze at it in 33% size.
