I love the spring when the swallows come back. Tiny little Tree Swallows flitting and soaring all over the area. So shiny and lovely. I had to try my hand at painting one of these. You would laugh at my sketch. A bird with many heads from the different positions it looked at. I finally settled on the pose I would use for the painting. I painted this from my final sketch in Photoshop, using natural media brushes and my impressionistic style.
