I loved painting this original woodpecker in watercolour!
He has fabulous feathers and colourings and his pose was so paintable.
I used Arches hot pressed 100% cotton rag paper and took it slowly; building washes one at a time. He was overlaid about 3 times and I only added the final details and accents right at the end.
Woodpeckers are such dapper birds!
For the bird lover this original painting would be a lovely gift or addition to your gallery at home.
I can paint any animal for you!

For a random animal (not a portrait with a pet’s likeness) I charge $75 plus shipping and for actual pet portraits with a true likeness my rate is $115 plus shipping.
