Birthday bullfinch

I painted this one for a friend's birthday card. I'm lucky enough to have a group of these birds as regular garden visitors at the moment, helping themselves to the berries on the shrubs and trees.

Watercolour, 5" by 7"


  1. Fabulous bird - what a great card your friend will be receiving!

  2. Thanks Pat, these birds are really beautiful (especially the pink-breasted males!) They are lovely to paint too - there's not too much feather detail to worry about, just blocks of beautiful colour :-)
