"And in green underwood and cover, blossom by blossom the spring begins." A. C. Swinburne

Birds are one of my favorite subjects to draw and paint in watercolors.  Not only do their animated poses and natural habitats offer endless possibilities for composition, their very nature compels our brushstrokes to imitate their fleeting, light-as-air personalities.  The sparse, early spring foliage in this scene serves to frame and compliment Mr. Robin's distinctive rusty-orange breast.    

In this lesson we'll emphasize using expressive brushwork to create implied texture - on the bird as well as on his moss-covered perch.
