It sure is easier with the yellow warbler posed perfectly for me. The feathers were a real challenge becuse I wanted to study them later and learn the specific names of the different types of feathers. I wanted to try and get the different layers close to the correct position. I am so excited to learn how to draw and paint in nature.
I wouldn't have noticed the layers of feathers and where they are when the bird folds its wings. I also always thought of a yellow warbler as all yellow. Look at the rusty colored patterns and the white and black on the wing feathers. What a great surprise!
