Carmine Bee - Eater in watercolours

So this is the full bird painted in watercolours.  I just love this birds feather colours and I am really pleased with the final painting. I went with the 8 x 6 inch size in the end.  I still want to paint another Carmine Bee - Eater but I will paint it in acrylics. 

Carmine Bee Eater  measures 8 x 6 inches and is painted on 300gsm rough Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Scotch Macaskill for the reference photo.
