Bird on the wall

Bird on the wall
Another fantastic creature came to visit this morning.
This time it was on the outside of our bedroom window.
It was around 3 inches from head to tail! So, so cool!
Today I've finally started to paint the bird on the wall.
I had to prime the birdie outline with acrylic gesso first to smooth out the surface
and fill in all the tiny cracks and crevices of the concrete.
I'm going to use Windsor & Newton oils to paint it later today.
Please come by tomorrow to see the progress.
