About 30 years ago I visited my daughter in Las Vegas. We went window shopping in a nearby mall. I spotted 2 small ceramic birds that I liked. For my following birthday I received them as gifts. I was surprised & pleased. So today I decided to paint one to see if it could look like ceramic. I also wanted to paint with gray tones. I added a few highlights but the overall light was generalised & there wasn't much contrast. I will paint another one in different light. I do like the results of this bird anyway. Sweet.
