This is a birdie that I painted on a gesso board with crackle in the background and painted the bird with watercolor paints. QoR watercolors from Golden Paints. Also I tried to open the pictures of the birds and they would not open. I was able to download the zip drive but that is as far as it got. I want to thank you for this lesson I have learned a lot that I did not know before. I wished I could go to England and take a class with you personally. You explain things very clearly and they make sense. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with the rest of us.
