I love the position this bird is sitting on the branch and I am really please with how the final painting turned out. These birds are found throughout Australia and measure around 14 - 16 cm in length, of which half of it is their tail. They weigh around 9 grams.
Grey Fantail measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
