I had do the background twice for this one. First time round I just wasn't happy with it and ended up throwing it away and starting again on new card/paper. Much happier how it turned out the second time. Rather pleased how the bird turned out as well. Townsend's Warbler is a small songbird and is about 12 cm long.
Townsend's Warbler measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painting on 300gsm smooth Archers watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Andy Reago and Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
