Pheasant Study is a preparatory painting for a larger work that never came to fruition.
A 9x12" acrylic painting on a tan-toned archival paper, this work is meant to be put in any frame of your choice! (For best display results, do not put the painting behind glass.)
Accented with shimmering gold paint, this work captures light and reflects it beautifully.
Males guard their groups of females from the advances of other males. Like many birds, Ring-neck pheasants take frequent dust baths, raking their bills and scratching at the ground, shaking their wings to sweep dust and sand into their feathers, lying on their sides and rubbing their heads.
