Riccardo is a detail artist, actually that may be an understatement...for this painting he began with a trip to the desert southwest to take photos, watch birds, gather back ground compositon materials and to make his preliminary sketches.
Our gallery visitors love Greater Road Runner painting and spend quite some time looking at details, the gravel, lizzard chola cactus and of course the feathers. Some have asked if he used real feathers!
Over 1000 hours of work has gone into this compositon, literally weeks of detail drawings & sketches are needed before painting begins. master painter, Riccardo Capraro
