Draw-a-Bird Day

Copyright ©2016 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

I’ve been painting or trying to paint flowers the last month, but I did want to try one bird for Draw-a-Bird Day so, painted a House Finch using my newest watercolor Lukas 12 half pan palette. I painted it in my Strathemore Mixed Media Journal.

This is a male House Finch that has been coming to our feeders for a long time.  I love his bright red coloring.
