Robin in leaves, done at Hope Lodge. 15x20 watercolor

Having gotten something of a feel for how a robin is put together over these past couple days I made this final painting of today's session and tried to convey just the essence of a robin without doing much detail. As with painting anything in minimal fashion what is first required is a full understanding of the subject. Only with that knowledge can you know which lines are critical and which are dispensable.
