I love how this little guy is perched on the branch and the tilt of his head. Really pleased with how it turned out.
My brush order arrived today from Rosemary & Co in UK - I was down to my last spare Designer Pointed Sable Mixture size 4 brush. I order 10 size 4 brushes so that should last me awhile. For most of my paintings, I use a flat brush for the background and for the rest of the painting I use a Pointed Size 4 brush. So I go through quite a few of them as once the point goes, I have to replace them. They do last really well through - the last order I placed was back in February and I only order 6 of them. And finally I sign my name with Rigger Script brush.
Chestnut Backed Chickadee measures 5 x 5 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth paper.
Many thanks to Andy Reago & Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
