Bluebird on Channel Iron Post

Bluebird on Channel Iron Post

15310798564_727fec1dc9_oHere’s a bluebird that I painted using my Winsor and Newton travel set with 14 half-pans of watercolor.  A damp brush across a pan produces vivid colors, although the background was made using dilute values with a glazing technique.  This is a Western Bluebird (no orange or yellow on the breast).
