At the end of last year, I decided to purchase the larger sheets of Colourfix Smooth Paper as I wanted to do a few larger paintings. I sometimes find the 8 x 8 inch a bit small. So decided to try a 10 x 10 inch and actually found it to be the perfect size. This is the first one that I painted in the 10 x 10 inch size and I will be painting more in this size in the coming weeks. Superb Fairy Wren No 23 measures 10 x 10 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.

I painted this one a little bit differently - normally I paint the background and then paint the bird on top. With this one, I used the Atelier Free Flow acrylics to block in the background and bird and then I swapped to the Atelier Interactives to build up the details. Really pleased with how it turned out.
Great Tit No 4 measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.
Many thanks to Aschi for the reference photo.
