I recently saw a nuthatch for the first time, so I’ve been wanting to paint it. I found out that it is the only bird that can walk straight down a tree trunk. It hides seeds in the trunk to eat later.
I am on a bit of a roll with the sparrows – I’m painting a couple more after this. I am really enjoying working with the brighter colours. Painting flowers is new to me, so I’m having fun figuring that out.
Adding a few flowers to my bird paintings has been fun. It’s a nice opportunity to try out new colour combinations. I can’t remember the last time I used pink!
I like it when I can mix up the greens with another colour. Especially purple! Helps the birds to pop out, I think.
