15x11 watercolor of a Western Bluebird on Saunders 140 lb cold press paper and Daniel Smith paints. This was one of five watercolor bird illustrations done for North Light Books a few years back that I've never shown. They selected two, a penguin and house sparrow, for their publication Painters Quick Reference Birds & Butterflies. I'll be posting the other birds as well except for the penguin that already appears in my sidebar on the blog home page. This is based on one I found down a stairwell at work, in the corner, shivering as he was cold. I didn't realize we had them in Texas.
