Mid-Afternoon Pause

Its been a little while since I've posted (or finished) a watercolour that I thought I would post one tonight. This particular guy is a mountain chickadee (reference from Dave Slaughter from Wetcanvas)enjoying a mid-afternoon break. I really had a fun time playing with colours... adding blues and purples to the shadows. Its really hard to see the purples/blues... but in real life they sure add a lot of life to the shadowed areas.
