New Watercolor and Gouache Painting

 A new watercolor painting of a red breasted grosbeak.

I got to see one of these beauties frequenting my bird feader in the backyard over the past few weeks.
We live in Florida, and I am discovering that a lot of really interesting birds migrate through here! 
This little painting is made using both the normal watercolor paints as well as gouache (opaque watercolors).
I really like using a combination of both, and think that is adds a more illustrative feel to the piece.

I hope you enjoy it!

Prints as well as the original will be for sale soon on my Etsy shop.

Hope you have a great day!
