"American Goldfinch" By Debra Tritt Kreiger

"American Goldfinch" 7.5"x10" watercolor on Arches 140lb paper

I've been working on this painting for a little while. The challenge I had was placing this beautiful goldfinch in a pleasing and exciting background. I take my own photo reference pictures so I'm learning to look for interesting places to incorporate the wonderful creatures I encounter. I worked on giving the background some nice texture and color to provide harmony and interest to the painting. The sunflowers are great since I wanted to show him with a seed! Turned out to be a bright and cheery painting! Hope you like it!
