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.
