Can you believe that I found this bird on Google Street view?  When in Venice, paint the birds 🙂  Okay, it isn’t a high resolution image, but in this case I was happy to work with the bird shape.  At first I thought it must be a crow because it was all black, but its shape wasn’t right.  I think it is a pigeon.  Click here to see the beautiful scene I ignored in order to paint the shape of a bird.

As many of you know I often paint from Google Maps street view.  Google generously allows artists to use these views as reference for painting or drawing without copyright infringement.
