Bird Study

 Here is the start of a new work...or perhaps just a study! I wanted to paint this bird but give it a soft look  with watercolor. I might give the wings a little more color.and add more paint in some other areas. Then I'm hoping to add a nice background!

I made a light wash after masking out the whites.

I added more paint after masking out more spots.

I added more paint and removed the masking.


  1. I really like this little bird. His feathers look soft, like down. Maybe he is young or maybe he is hunkered down in cold weather. I think he would look good in a winter scene.


  2. You know what? I think you're right. I just placed him in a summer scene but maybe I could try the other another time. Food for thought!
