After doing a few of versions of the birdies all lined up (including one in which I inverted the colours because I wanted a very blue background), I decided to make a few paintings of the birdies on their own, and on smaller canvases. The first one in this new series was done during Paint the County back in July. I really liked how that single bird turned out, with it's high-gloss reflections, that I wanted to capture that in these newer ones.

However, unless another commission for these guys comes up, I am now finished painting these toy birds.
