The yellow bird; the fox; bestiary

The yellow bird, oil on card, 17.5 x 12.5 cm

Alas I suppose there is some of Picasso (not my favorite painter by any means) in this: I love painting animals, so did he,but my regular landscape work doesn`t often accommodate this. So I will paint things like this from time to time. 

I recall a children`s book called The Painted Bird (perhaps I misremeber the title?) beautifully illustrated about a painter and how a bird he painted comes to life. I`m not referring to the 1965 novel by Jerzy Kosiński.

 The fox, oil on card, 16 x 11 cm

These two are the first in a bestiary, which I hope you enjoy.
