Yellow-rumped Warbler watercolor painting

My newest watercolor. A Yellow-rumped Warbler (male), one of my favorite birds. I love warblers because they are so fun to watch and identify. It's still a challenge to identify the unique patterns and colors of each warbler. This one can be identified by, among other markings, the yellow patches on it's rump, side, and crown.

Striped Feathers Watercolor

striped feathers watercolor painting

This is a watercolor I painted yesterday afternoon of some striped feathers. Based on photographs I've taken of feathers I've come across on walks and hikes. A small 5x7 watercolor - the feathers are roughly life size.
I'm pretty sure the feathers on either end are from woodpeckers and the larger brown one is an owl feather, probably from a Barred Owl. The center one was on a beach and I'd guess it was from a Gull or Tern. I have no idea what bird the small white feather is from but it was very pretty, I had never seen one like that before.
