Great work! Has a real oriental feel to it - serene and uncluttered but realistic. I feel like I want to turn my head to see whatever he's looking at.

Judging by this painting you should keep painting with oils. You obviously have the talent to work in this medium.

Excellent! Beautiful bird and the grasses are very lifelike. Colors are also excellent!

I can't believe this is all traditional! The fine details, especially in the feathers!, are so convincing. I really like how you chose to use a neutral gray for the background. It's not distracting and allows the viewer to focus on the bird.
