I love how this one is perched on the branch and couldn't resist painting it.
I usually only use phthalo blue in a seascape painting or when painting blue feathers. But when I came to do this one, I accidentally picked up the tube of phthalo blue paint instead of Ultramarine Blue. So since it was now on my pallet, I decided to experiment with it in my background colours and really like the results.
Golden Cheeked Warbler measures 5 x 5 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.
Many thanks to Bettina Arrigoni for the reference photo.
