Robin, originally uploaded by pica pica.

This was my first bird painting ever. It took about 12 hours to paint and 3 hours to clean up the scan.
Painted using Winsor & Newton artist quality watercolours on RWS hot pressed paper. I use RWS paper as it is the whitest paper available and usually scans well.
View this on my website as a notecard. Ideal as a Christmas card or thankyou note.
