When I was in Florida and mom was laying in bed moaning about being sick, and generally sleeping, I had time to do a watercolor. Mom had tons of calenders around because she loves the animal or nature pictures. I picked one and tried it. Mom loved it so much that I left it with her, propped up where she could see if from her bed.
I had to take a picture with my cell phone, her scanner is goofy and wouldn't work for me.
I had trouble with the background, and will ask my watercolor teacher about that and oh yeah, his tail feathers are a bit crooked but we figure he was moving or something when the pic was taken or else maybe it was me putting them in a bit odd.
Glad mom liked the painting, it was fun to do.
