"Chickadee" My wife has been asking me to paint another chickadee for years. A wonderful man, Joe Lopez, who lives rather remotely in the woods up north takes incredible wildlife photos. He gave me permission to paint from several of his pictures. When I saw his chickadee photo I knew I had to do it in watercolor. I simplified the branches a little so the bird would be more dominant. I think I'm going to do this one many times.
