I started out, as I usually do, scrubbing a warm colour on the canvas, followed by a quick sketch.
Then I started adding light glazes of colour, blocking in the fence post and the prairie grasses. Next I painted in the sky.
I changed the bird from a blue bird to a blue jay, with a little bit of attitude, his feathers ruffled from the prairie winds.

This one and other "Prairie Whispers" can be viewed in my gallery.
