Bird Series - Goldfinch, © Carol Nelson Fine Art


I love to see that flash of yellow in my yard. Goldfinches like to eat thistle seed. I suppose if I were a really serious birding enthusiast I would grow Canadian thistle plants for the birds, but I'm not that much of a birder, preferring to put out a little of the thistle seed for them instead.
This painting is painted on a wood Baroque Artist panel with natural wood cradled sides. For purchase information, please see my website.

Can't get enough of this bird series! Love the way the Goldfinch practically jumps off the canvas. The use of black in loose outline around the bird and flowers pulls everything together so well. Just lovely!

Beautiful painting of a goldfinch. I like his 'side profile' pose and the bit of orange on his underside is a nice accent to his beak.

I love your "flash" of yellow and all the crisp color you use. I've never painted birds, but it makes me want to! It's been so fun to get introduced to all this new super work through the new Daily Painter Originals site
