Oh my god.  I love the detail in the leaves.  Do you have any pictures of your work in progress?  I am absolutely dying to know what your process is for painting with that much exactness.  Are you using oil paint over an acrylic wash? How big do you work, and is this image shrunk down much?

Simply incredible! About how many hours do you reckon went into this piece, and what did you use as reference? One of the most incredible pieces I have ever seen, truly.

It's not just the delicate detail of the grouse, but the texture of the leaves upon which it stands, you can almost hear the crunch!  :)

I enjoy every aspect of your work, but I must say, one of my favorite parts to look at is the leaves! I think it is a beautiful thing that you take the time to work on even the small things. Well done! :clap:
