17.5x13 watercolor on gessoed matboard finished today. Drawn with charcoal pencil from a taxidermist model I found in a Tyler, TX antique store in 2009, am just getting around to painting it. Largely brown and burnt sienna feathers covered the fellow's body. I photographed him as he was perched on a tall furniture piece so this angle was interesting as he looks quizzical.
