Chaffinch watercolour sketch
Detailed watercolour, painted as an initial nature study, for a potential larger watercolour painting.
Available as Original framed, overall frame size 355mm x 280mm.
Also available as Fine Art Giclee Print Framed, overall frame size 355mm x280mm.
There are two frames to choose from; Off-white and Oak.
I decided to paint all the rear markings of the bird, because most of the time as soon as they spot me, they turn their backs, pause, then fly off. The Chaffinch is quite a cautious bird and it takes a while for them to accept my presence.
Chaffinch was painted using only 3 primary colours. No black, no white, no masking fluid. Just pure watercolour.
