Cruising Through

I love the pose of this chickadee... it looks like he has stopped just long enough for a quick pose before taking off to the sky again. I've also noted that this is my 40th miniature chickadee painting!

I've been playing around with my new watercolours in my sketchbook (yup, I've sketched in it nearly everyday) and absolutely loving them. I've almost completed a mini painting using most of my new colours... I'll definitely be posting that one tomorrow.

Does this little chickadee have your new Daniel Smith colors? If so, which ones?

Hi Laure,
This one only has a touch of the Quinacridone Gold Deep in the body... but that colour alone is well worth the purchase of the rest of the Toucan Triad. I've painted a hummingbird that has a combination of most of my new colours (couldn't resist). I'll be posting that one tonight.

The colours in this chickadee were: Quinacridone Gold Deep, Ivory Black, Indigo, Burnt Sienna.
