30 Paintings In 30 Days Challenge Day No. 16 - Wild Turkey by Mary Beth Brath

Wild Turkey by Mary Beth Brath

I have taken the challenge by Leslie Saeta to complete 30 paintings in 30 days. Each painting will be 6x6" on canvas paper. I picked a theme of birds to keep me focused. The 30 birds chosen as subject matter are all birds that I have spotted over the years. Most are common in my region.

Painting No. 16
I was not very excited about painting a turkey. When I see them in the wild, many times they just look messy and blah. Turns out, this was one of my favorites to paint so far. Again, the digital image of the painting is too cool and the background looks greener than the actual painting. The background is really a warm olive.
The paintings are available for purchase at $100 each - unframed. Shipping included. Sales tax of 6% if in the state of Pennsylvania. Contact me at
