I've always thought pheasants to be one of the most incredible upland game birds. Growing up we saw few truly wild pheasants, but up the road was a hunting club that released birds for timed trials and paid hunts. We would often see escapees crossing the road away from the club, headed for a brushy fencerow or an overgrown, abandoned farmstead. These guys were runners - they preferred to run from danger rather than hold and flush, making them about as frustrating to a hunter as a henned-up turkey.

In this painting, I wanted the pheasant to be the star of the show, so I kept most of the detail and contrast near the bird's head and really loosened up around the edges. Most of the painting was done with a palette knife.
