Pet Project #4: Watercolor Budgie

This is a small watercolor painting of a budgie. The source is a photograph I took recently at the fabulous "Landing Zone" (the latest addition) in Sylvan Heights (link) Waterfowl Park in Scotland Neck.I am hoping this bird looks like someone's pet, so it will help the "Pet Project" fundraiser.

Artist Note: The challenge for this painting (which did't work on the first little painting) was to allow the white of the bird to merge with the white of the background: to have the bird be both the foreground and to disappear into the background) (look at the back to "see" this). I am home later today, so I can start to post photographs again.
