I did finish the butterfly painting - actually only finished it on Friday - took longer to paint than I thought it would. Just waiting for the paint to cure before varnishing it so will post it in the next few days.
This is the other one I had lined up to paint. I am rather pleased how it turned out. Scarlet Robins can be found across Australia and can be confused with the Flame Robin. The Scarlet Robin has a larger white patch above its bill compared to the Flame Robin.
Scarlet Robin measures 6 x 4 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
