Red-Breasted Goose by DarkSilverflame Red-Breasted Goose by DarkSilverflame
Portrait painting of a Red-breasted goose (Branta ruficollis), probably the most beautiful species of goose in the world, and certainly one of my favorites. Sadly, they are endangered.
Aren't they gorgeous? The clownfish of geese ^^

Gift for someone special. You know who you are (:

Still a lovely and detailed painting of this gorgeous species - would love to see it one day in the Netherlands where they sometimes reside :D I've only got one remark: that red is way too deep and saturated, you'll never see something like that in the wild :)

Thanks a lot for the compliment and comment :)
Ah yes, I remember I made it saturated like this, because the real color looked too dull for what I had in mind. I wanted more impact, so that the viewer would be mesmerized ^^

Alright, your choice for choosing impact over realisticness :)

Yes, but you are right of course. Maybe I'll do another one that's more realistic :)
And I think the word you were looking for is realism :D

Wow, this is a pretty geese. :wow: Down here our geeses are brown, black, and white instead of red, black, and white. Also they got long necks and a much bigger beak. Also they are pretty big, at least bigger than this one.
