This is my favorite water color painting that I have done so far.
Sorry I don't know what kind of bird this is.
I am so glad that I stumbled across this web sight, it has rekindled a desire to do art again after many years. Thank you Wet Canvas great job!:clap: :clap: :clap:

Yar What you have is a young female American Goldfinch ( Carduelis tristis). A type of canary in the perching bird family. The female is duller than the male (in color). You did an excellent job would like to see more of your work

Very nice. What color yellow sis you use. Looks just like the ones that come to my feeders. They come in golden masses. They are so beautiful! You have captured them well:)

Hello Yar,

Your goldfinch is really nicely painted. Great job on the beak, eye, and feathers. I think your background is terrific too. So many people here hate to paint backgrounds because they don't know what to do with them, but you handled it so well in this painting. You've used several colors and blendd them softly and unobtrusively.

Sweetbabydill, Dolors, Alan, Rapolina, Phillip, Tracie, Silvia, and Irene, thanks again for all of your comments.
Sorry I am not sure what colors of yellow I used, probably a mix of Cad Yellow Deep and Lemon Yellow.
