For week 41 of '52 Weeks of Watercolor Birds', I went for a lot of texture using salt, splattering and scraping. In fact, I scraped so much I almost went through the paper. Oops! The result looks more like a mixed media than a watercolor, but nope. Just watercolor pigment and techniques.
Done with a variety of Senelier, Winsor Newton, Daniel Smith and M Graham watercolors.
This bird was painted in the Global Art Materials Field Watercolor Artist Journal Hand Book, 7 by 10-Inch that I'm using for the '52 Weeks of Watercolour Birds'.
My reference photo came from the Morguefile archive.
