The Sparrow

7"x7"
A small brown sparrow 
Papers play a vital part in painting.I have three or four kinds of papers and all of them behave differently,making it difficult to switch when you are painting continuously. This was Arches cold pressed and it behaved very differently than the Hahnemuhle that I normally paint on.I realized that the pigment glides on Hahnemuhle while Arches absorbs more.This switch resulted in a few failed paintings.This sparrow came out ok,though.
