I  really LOVE this, do you mind if I use it to make a Guatemalan flag, if I post it anywhere I'll give credit!

Oh no! Maybe you can piece it back together as a collage? (I speak from experience of ripping things up and then regretting it, tehe).

Your animal pictures are so lovely. The anatomy is always wonderful, and the vibrant colors make this one really pop.

:D no, I don't want it back. I explained why in a previous comment if you care enough to read but it's not very interesting.
Anyway, I thank you. I'd hate to end up as a wildlife artist where accuracy is superlative but I do care about capturing a recognisable likeness...so thanks :D

I'm not sure why you thought this was shite and I don't really know why you tore it up, but I've definitely had moments when I've finished something and haven't felt confident in the final product.

I do like this one. I like how the background is subtle and pale and how bright and vibrant the bird is. I also like ht contrast of the squareness of the background with the strong arch of the birds position.

Well, I suppose it's not the worst-looking thing in the world but there's a lot of work in it. A lot of paintover. ..and it goes against the whole point of these series of paintings so it's a step backwards in that way.

Understandable. The piece didn't meet your artistic goals. I think we have all been there at least once or twice.
