Woodland bird costumes (work in progress) 8/8/16

This watercolour which I’m currently working on is my largest work for a while (405mm x 265mm). My inspiration was the markings of local woodland birds that I’ve seen on recent bushwalks, painted on vintage dolls. The species represented here are Jacky Winter, Yellow-rumped Thornbill, Flame Robin, Brown Treecreeper, Striated Pardalote although I am yet to spot a Painted Button-quail (foreground).
