Adam Doyle paints "beautiful gestural portraits of birds," according to the art blog Colossal. His other work includes book covers, paintings and illustrations aimed at children, and contributions to the 52 Shades of Greed card deck (4 of clubs, 5 & 6 of hearts, and 7 of spades).

They're kind of neat, but this is definitely not what comes to mind when I hear, "gestural." I guess it technically fits, but I find these to be incredibly mannered.

I agree, cmoj - "gestural," for me, calls to mind single-stroke paintings. Still, I like the effects that Doyle gets.
