Painting Through Prosek: Quail

So I know James Prosek doesn’t really have a painting like this, but I can’t just leave the title so easily and he is big into birds. I figure it works. 
During baby David’s nap the other day I too my shot a painting a quail. They really are beautiful birds. I’ve only seen them a couple times in the wild. After spending an hour looking at pictures on the Internet, I can imagine why people get so obsessed with them. 
This was my first shot at a bird and I went for nearly then entire thing. I think the head went well. 
I let the details go a bit on the tail feathers. 
The finished product.
