Robin background dropped in today.

Background is on.  The watercolour board is curled from all the water. Will relax as it dries. Can't wait to get the masking off and finish this cute robin!

Robin has left the building!

The baby robin is coming along nicely. Have a lot of paintings in line to complete over the summer months.  This guy is first before I get the other ideas fully drawn out on paper. Am incorporating some of Peggi Habets style in this and will attempt to do my background soon. A little more work on his beak before that though. He is on 16" X 20" Arches 140 lb watercolour board. This is new to me also, am kind of liking it. Has a somewhat "silky" fabric feel to it. Am using Holbein: Ultramarine, Turquoise, Alizarin Crimson-- Daniel Smith: Payne's Gray-- Winsor-Newton: Quinacridone Gold.
