Someone posted this photo of a chickadee to one of the watercolor groups I'm in, asking people to paint it, and I just couldn't resist this fat little bird! So for day 6 I decided to try my hand at it. I was pretty pleased with the way this one turned out. Its definitely my best attempt at a bird so far. Here's the original photo a used for reference:

thank you so much!

What type of pen do you use to lay down your outline?

Very cute painting. Painting feathers is always tough. You did a nice job at it here.

·

thank you! I just use sharpie for now...they're the only pens I have that don't bleed when I add the watercolor. There are better waterproof pens out there, but I plan on investing in better paints and brushes before I upgrade my pens :)

Gotcha. I appreciate the info and advice! Have a great day.

I wanted to take part I wish I have time to do this everyday

You should! do it at your own pace if you want, just make it a goal to do 100 pieces of art total, even if that takes much longer than 100 days :) I'm never opposed to breaking the rules! ;)
