"Robin" watercolor 5"x7" $75

I've seen this Robin before in my yard and in fact she's been here all summer because robins will nest as many times as they can each summer.
As fall arrives, the rich colors in the trees seem to develop or are my eyes just seeing what they want to see?
The background in this watercolor mimics the rich fall colors: indigo, reds and yellows. I painted this with the Winslow Homer mantra: keep layering and removing paint till it is just right. He never said die.
Watercolors are not delicate just the paper and paper is expendable. Use heavier paper to keep painting. Use materials that are right for your painting style.
