Blue Fairy Wren - Week 41 of 52 Weeks of Watercolor Birds #WorldWatercolorGroup #Watercolor #52WeeksOfWatercolorBirds

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.
