Robin Watercolor Sketch #2

This makes three sketches I've managed within a 24 hour period.  What a great feeling after the long dry spell I've been through this year.  Let's hope I can keep it up ...... at least painting or drawing a little something each week.

Same Robin as previous post but different stance.  The rail he's sitting on I'm not real thrilled with but I feel pretty good with how the bird turned out.  Especially the granulation achieved in the chest area. 

Daniel Smith Cad Red Light, Cad Yellow, Burnt Umber, Paynes Gray, Raw Sienna, Cobalt Blue and Fr Ultramarine.

On Langton 140lb Cold Press (Not)

Primarily wet in wet with dry brushing towards the end to darken areas.

#10 Round (found the #6 was a bit too small in the last painting sketch and #6 for tighter areas.  Also used a 3/8" Angular to lift some whites in the feather area.
