Pine Siskin

9x4.75 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper done today.  Using a scrap of backing paper that already had multiple marks, I sketched the bird, a pine siskin then painted wet on dry.  Last trip to New Mexico I was able to take lots of bird photos and pine siskins were at a neighbor's bird feeder.  I do like the effect of the abstract background with mingled greys, pinks, and soft mixed greens.
