Mirror- Wintering Little Stint

Sharing one out of the recent set of paintings I did towards the end of last year. The new job and responsibility at the Embassy of Japan, hampered my painting habit :(. But adapting to come back to week end paintings at the moment. Hope I can recover soon.
This painting encouraged by the great enthusiasm on waders, made itself a success, as I believe. Hope you all enjoy.

Ceylon Whistlng Thrush building a nest in an artificial habitat, First record.

An interesting sighting of a bird behaviour, made by me recently, has been published on 'Ceylon Today' newspaper. A pair of Ceylon Whistling - thrush/ Arrenga had built a nest in a man made habitat in Horton Plains national park on March, 2016. The site was an abandoned building inside the park and the nest had been built in it. The species is an endemic, endangered, illusive and very shy bird that is heard more than seen. It is very strange that a nest being built on such an artificial habitat. Finding a nest even in it's usual natural nesting habitat is occasional, having only few records.

something different

I did a human portrait after a long time on request of a old school friend. I stopped painting it at a stage that I preferred as being completed. But based on comments, I came out with this final stage, which looks nice too. This painting is quite a quick work. Hope you enjoy !
