Fluffy Female Cardinal ~ xPost Animals & Wildlife


11.75x8.5 watercolor on matboard done this afternoon with no pre-drawing or reference used, only a brush and my imagination. Small amounts white acrylic used here and there. I have been watching hummingbirds and cardinals outside and when I found a used piece of mat already prepared with gesso the opportunity was too good to pass up.
C&C welcome

Re: Fluffy Female Cardinal ~ xPost Animals & Wildlife

I like the 'wet' quality of bird and background, combined with the defined eye and beak. Beautiful!
