Portrait Study of Beetle

6" x 5" Oil on panel

This is our juvenile pigeon named Beetle that we've been nursing back to health. She's been recuperating in a big cage on our porch which gave me the perfect opportunity to observe her closely and attempt this little study. When pigeons are young their eyes are tannish brown. As they age they become more and more yellow-orange.  Her eyes just starting turning this week.
