White Capped Noddy birds
11x15 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper, finished today, after drawing yesterday and beginning putting darks in first as seen below. Fellow artist Christine in Australia provided a larger photo which I cropped down to position the mother bird looking out of her nest to unseen dangers. Little baby white capped noddy is covered by her protective wing. Branches and twigs were negatively painted within a multicolored natural background.
