I love the colouring of this bird. I used a combination of Ultramarine Blue, Transparent Yellow, Yellow Ochre and a bit of raw umber to create the olive green feathers - worked rather well. Really pleased with the final painting.
The Yellow Breasted Apalis is found in Sub Saharan Africa and are about 11 - 13 cm in length.
Yellow Breasted Apalis measures 3.5 x 2. 5inches and is painted on 300gsm Smooth Arches watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Derek Keats for the reference photo.
