Superb Fairy Wren in watercolours

Photographed this little fellow at Liffey Falls.  He was also fascinated by his reflection in the car mirrors.  I was undecided on which medium to use but finally settled on watercolour as I have painted a few wren's now in both  oils and acrylics so thought watercolours made for a nice change.  It is a bit different painting in watercolours -  had to preserve the white of the paper for highlights and can't paint as detailed as I normally do.  Rather pleased with the result though.

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