I love the coloration of the female cardinal, so I thought I'd try watercoloring one.
I based the color scheme on the Basic Grey Gypsy paper I used...which is sooo not what I'd normally do, but I like it! When I sponged the Marigold Morning on the background, I got too much on the sponge and it turned out darker than I'd planned. I intentionally let the ends of the floss show behind the flowers to add a little "something".
