Catalogue d'Oiseaux: Northern Flicker

I liked how this Northern Flicker painting turned out.

And I actually used the same limited palette described in my "Process: Cardinal Painting" post from the other day. Cadmium Red Light, Phthalo Green, and White. I thought it would be fun to show the two side by side and illustrate some of the variety and unity that can be achieved with only two colors on the palette.

So there they are.
