The background colors came from me swiping my pallet knife to clean off the colors that it had on it from a different painting I was working on. I didn't want to waste the paint, so I wiped the excess onto this painting. Turned out to be a cool effect.
What kind of bird is this?
A lively warbler that hops among tree branches in search of insects, the male American Redstart is coal-black with vivid orange patches on the sides, wings, and tail. True to its Halloween-themed color scheme, the redstart seems to startle its prey out of the foliage by flashing its strikingly patterned tail and wing feathers. Females and immature males have more subdued yellow flash patterns on a gray background. These sweet-singing warblers nest in open woodlands across much of North America.
