Thinking of Spring Migration
The Canada Goose is one of those birds that is great fun to paint. Their large size coupled with feather detail, elegant black neck and white cheek patches offers an incredible variety of painting opportunities.
Early migrants to the wetlands often rest on the ice, waiting for the renewed warmth of the sun to continue to expand the open water. In this painting, other migrating geese can be seen in the reflection of the icy water.
