Chipping Sparrow study

So the object tonight was NOT to produce a "masterpiece", but rather limit my time to force myself to look for the shapes and simplify the shapes.  Per Kevin MacPhersons book "Fill Your Oil Paintings with Light & Color", I was only planning to paint 30 minutes, but I didn't get the canvas completely covered so I went over by about 15 minutes.  I was painting at night so this was based off a photograph from Birds and Blooms. 

Anyhow, I'll be doing lot's more of these small quick studies in preparation for the Thomas Jefferson Kitt's workshop in August.  He got my registration today and the class minimum is eight come on, painters!! 

So here's tonights 45 minute effort.  6"x8" canvas board.
