Daily Painting - Elegant Trogon

I apologize for my lack of posts. Our home internet connection has been spotty at best, making it pretty much impossible to add anything to our blogs. I'm taking advantage of a few minutes here to post things very quickly.

I have become very good about doing a painting each day. Here is one of my recent favorites, though it doesn't quite fit my parameters of fast and simple. Still, he's awfully pretty, isn't he?

I got the most fabulous book - an encyclopedia of North American birds. It's full of beautiful, full-color, close-up photos like this. There's nothing like good photo references.

This was painted with my Daniel Smith paints on Strathmore cold press watercolor paper.
