Those are amazing! The bird is beautiful, and at first, I thought both pictures were photographs!
It's like my artist friend always says to me, you always notice your own mistakes and that's all you tend to focus on. none of us can even see the flaws.The glass photo/painting looks better online lol. In person my eye goes straight to the places where I had the most difficulty, and unfortunately I went over it too many times with a wet brush, and compromised the paper. I won't point out where that was . Strange how the orange paint really faded.. it did used to be orange!
