 Nest on wood

1st day - blocking in overall composition and developing concept.
The nest was found by my housemate a while back. I borrowed it from her studio since she was away on vacation. Thanks Jafung!

2nd day - reblocking nest as focal point and begin finishing pass.

End of 2nd day - nest completed.

This painting took three days total to complete. 
The area surrounding the nest was painted on the third day. It was sitting on my model stand, which is dark stained wood with paint and tape randomly stuck to it.
Thanks for visiting!
