New Watercolor Bird Paintings - Chickadee and Wren

"Busy"
Original Watercolor Painting
5" x 7"

"Pensive"
Original Watercolor Painting
5" x 7"
These two are already in my Etsy shop if you are thinking of Christmas already.
Oh and there's a cardinal too, but he's being held off for a bit. The colors and layout are unconventional so I'm giving him some breathing room to decide if he's OK. Here's a sneak peek; any thoughts?

The cardinal is my favorite. What a wonderful job with each of these. I find watercolor very intimidating and difficult.. I am in awe.

Thanks to everyone for your comments. I really appreciate that you take time to look and comment. The cardinal is a little different but not in a bad way. He doesn't have a name yet though.

Cardinals often have a tough or grumpy look from that big bill and the way it curves. Makes them hard to portray sometimes :)

Can't pick a favorite - these are all lovely! I do love that cardinal though.
