Mourning Dove Mother 10 x 10" oil painting by Jill Peckelun

Mourning Dove Mother

This is a studio piece done from a photo I'd taken during warmer days.  Mourning Doves make messy abstract nests of twigs- its amazing they hold together.  I tried to keep that feeling in my brushwork.  The painting is done on Arches oil painting paper- a very handy support needing no prep work.
