House Finch ‘Carpodacus mexicanus’ illustration – work in progress

Work continues on the House Finch illustration this week. So far, I have painted in the background and also the main colour areas for the bird itself. Some detail was added with watercolour round brush No. 3 and 5, and I then started adding more detail with Faber-Castell Polychromos colour pencils. I love when the illustration begins to stand out and appear more three dimensional.
