Freezing Female Cardinal

9x6 watercolor done today from female cardinal outside our windows.  The red birds were visible in the icy snowy conditions, seeming to shiver although they were not.  I keep food for them and frequently they are seen on our patio feeding off the ground.  This work is on 140 lb hot press paper.  Two opaques by American Journey were used:  Mint Julep and Periwinkle in the background area.
