12x9 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper done this past weekend. In the finch family, the common redpoll can be seen in more colder northern climes. This fellow is staring at his world of pale blue skies and faded leaves. Ref courtesy my artist pal Joanne Nemeth of Canada in the WetCanvas/Watermedia challenge forum. I moved the bird to the lower right and placed branches, leaves, and twigs in front of him.
