I think this bird is adorable and I couldn't resist painting it. Really pleased how the painting turned out.
Tufted Titmouse is a small songbird found in North America. They measure around 14 - 16 cm in length and weight between 18 - 26 grams. An interesting fact about them is that they like to line their nests with hair and will sometimes pluck hair directly from living animals.
Tufted Titmouse measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
