Prompt: Red Cardinals in the snow
prompted by: Patty O., during Sketch Fest #58 (November, 2014)

Watercolor paints + white acrylic paint on ACEO. Referenced a photo on Google. I'm just starting to use watercolors, and I'm slowly getting used to it. I really love the depth. I LOVE the look of cardinals in the snow, especially when it's super bright white then bam red. lol I didn't realize when I took the photo how much the center of the bird had drifted, so I'll probably do another layer of red over it. Overall I'm really happy with it! Looks even better in person. Did end up having to use white acrylic paint because my watercolor white is actually a pale yellow/off white. Is this normal?? It bugs me beyond words. lol
