Puffin in watercolours

I felt like a change so decided to paint this bird in watercolours.  Was rather fun to paint - I have worked out that when I paint in watercolours, I have to paint the same way as I do with oils and acrylics - ie I don't prepare  washes beforehand - I just squeeze out the colours I want for the painting
and mix as I go. 

Puffin measures 5 x 7 inches and is painted on 300gsm Arches rough watercolour paper.


Many thanks to Gary Jones for the reference.
