The Creative Challenge this week was to paint feathers on a bird. I used alot of small, dry brushstrokes on this cute little guy. For the background I wet the paper first and started painting some of the evergreen branches and needles. When it was dry, I added more needles using green, burnt sienna and some blue. I think he looks very happy sitting in his evergreen tree among the bright red berries!
