Little bird Watercolour

Not entirely sure what kind of bird this is, which is unusual for me, but saw this picture on pixabay and thought “Hey, that’s pretty!” so that’s what I spent a bit of yesterday doing.

I drew it out on Winsor and Newton A5 140lb cold pressed watercolour paper. I love this paper because of the depth and character it feels like it adds to watercolours.

I used my Sakura Koi watercolours for the painting and tried to limit myself as to how many colours I was using, unlike usual where I try and use way too much of everything. Sometimes simple is best. The colours I used I think were Payne’s Grey, Crimson Lake, Permanent Deep Yellow, Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue and Yellow Green.
