Stellar's Jays, work in progress - almost finished, 18 x 24 inches watercolors on 140 lb. cold press

Stellar’s Jays at Nimkish Lake, Vancouver Island BC, 18 x 24 inches watercolors, still in progress but setting aside for study before mucking it up too much. Perfecting the eyes, beaks and feet, plus grounding the birds more firmly in place are best left for a fresh perspective, until I haven’t seen it for a while. Detail images:
