The final painting

Here is the final painting! As a last step, I took a very soft squirrel hair brush, loaded it up with a lot of water and a little ultramarine blue, and swept it over the bird AND the background on the back and bottom of the bird to 'attach' him better to the background. This is another trick to help the subject to not look like a cutout, but attached to the background of the painting.
