I have tweaked the eagle painting, not a great deal but specifically three small areas suggested by Yvonne, Jan and Mick. I darkened the branch, removing as much of the green as I could. There is still a little but it is much lighter, and erased some of the pencil marks on the tail. That was all as resisting over painting and too much fiddling is something I have to constantly be on guard against.

Another bird - not sure what species -Work in Progress.
Here are two other bird paintings I'm working on. I do like birds and animals and will certainly be painting a number from now on - but I'm not intent on becoming just a wildlife artist. For those who are not keen on such subjects I will be also painting portraits, still lifes and flowers. Landscapes and buildings I'm not so enthused about although I will force myself to tackle a few and cover these subjects with other posts. There will continue to be a goodly number - approximately half - of other matters related to watercolour as I'm sure these are of more interest to many than my paintings.
