Something I really enjoy working with is my watercolor paints.  Watercolors are so different both in the way you work and the in final result from acrylic paints.  With watercolors at the start you have a fluid, relaxed approach but as the painting processes and you want to add details, it can be very unforgiving as if a brush stroke is incorrect, it is very hard to rectify.  However the effects you can achieve can be rewarding as the effect of light and shadow can be quite luminous.

This is a painting inspired by American photographer, Rodney Campbell, I just loved the colours of this male Goldfinch enjoying the sunshine in the pine trees.
