Lori Bentley Week #2

The colours: Terre vert, Lemon Yellow, turquoise and indigo
Terre Vert is a colour I don't use a lot. It is not a saturated colour so tends to be swamped by other more intense colours. You can see it at the bottom of the bird's body before it melds with the lemon yellow.

The bird: a blue tit.

The final painting:

I washed back the blue above the head and added in some detail in indigo and watercolour pencil.
