I had to paint another Superb Fairy Wren since they are one of my favourite birds. I am really pleased how this one turned out. It all just seemed to work - just had to lighten the background a bit. I still want to paint a male and female wren in one painting - it will be 6 x 8 inch as I like that size. I still need to order some more panels - I see that Ampersand has now come out with a 6 x 8 inch panels so I have to make a decision on either going with the gessobord panels or the Raymar canvas panels - still undecided - both have there pro's and con's. Painting a Kingfisher at the moment on the canvas panel so see how turns out before making a final decision.
Superb Fairy Wren measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
Many thanks to James Niland for the reference photo.
