Birds of a Feather - watercolor

Have you seen this piece yet? It ended up as a half sheet painting, but it started as a full sheet. After completing the painting, I realized there was just too much in the background. I found that by using two white mat corners I could test cropping options and ended up cropping it to this as the final piece. It is framed in a simple gold frame with a white mat.

The birds were really fun to paint! They each had such character and the colors that resulted from the layering technique were surprisingly pretty.

I named this piece, "Birds of a Feather".
