Goldfinch in Coneflowers

Just for fun I cropped the photograph of the painting.

I think this demonstrates a problem with the larger work, in that the focus was a bit fractured by the conflicting elements.
This more limited composition seems to work better.
I mentioned the limited palette in the first posting. The purple hues are made with an iron oxide and ultramarine blue mix. They would be brighter with a cadmium red, but I like this shade.
