"Cozy" Male Zebra Finch Watercolor Painting

This adorable guy was inspired by a japanese youtube.com video of a pet zebra finch. He was sitting on an electronic device, I'm assuming was very comfy cozy warm because he kept puffing up like he was a momma bird on a nest. He would get as big and fluffy as he could and tuck in his little feet for a few seconds, then chirp, move over a couple steps then hunker down again.

I also used this piece as a recall memory practice. I watched that video, looked at a handful of photos of them, then painted him from memory.

He's painted using Reese's watercolor paints, on a 6"x6" cold press 140lb paper. He doesn't have a mat or frame, but upon request and with a small fee, I can have it done before shipping.
