The image here is a closeup view of one of the sandpiper birds that is hand painted on a wood table. There are 6 birds altogether with 4 sandpipers and 2 piping plovers. This is the first piping plover that I have hand painted on a table and it looks nice having a little variety. The photo here is of a sandpiper as he is running along the shore. The background is the crackle finish that I have applied to the entire table. It does make an interesting texture for the painting of the birds. I will be adding the the final details to the birds before adding the protective finish on the entire table. Check back to see how it comes out.
