2.75" x 1.75" Watercolour
I've never understood why house sparrows are generally regarded as rather dull birds. It seems rather unfair as they are beautifully marked and great little characters. I really enjoy painting them and their habit of exploring every nook and cranny makes them ideal subjects if you also enjoy painting forgotten corners of old sheds. Like me. So here is my latest miniature, a sparrow investigating some old bits of harness in search of the ideal nest site.
