Goldfinch

I painted this Goldfinch , inspired by photographs by my blogger friend, Fred Walsh. This is the first time I painted a bird! They also have character, you know.... It might take some more attempts to get those birds right.( The flowers were much more work!) But they are beautiful; aren't they?
Water color on CP watercolor paper
