Post workshop lull – back to the sketchbook

The latest bird in the facebook ‘Paint colorful birds for fun’ which is a red-backed fairy wren if I remember correctly.   Didn’t come out well – made too much use of the opaques,  the darks got muddy and I tried to save it using frantic splashes and white gouache.  Could be worse though.

A little landscape to warm up with.
