Pueblo Mountain Pair

Pueblo Mountain Pair  13" x 18" acrylic
This was my last painting of 2012!  Pueblo Mountain disappears in an approaching high desert snow storm as a pair of chukars flushes.  Although chukar have a grayish appearance, their plumage is very colorful when seen up close.  With this painting I tried to incorporate both what you would see in a flushing bird along with a hint of their true colors.  Smaller than a pheasant and larger than a quail, chukar love the rocky, arid mountains of the high deserts.
