Tufted Titmouse

Titmousies are common on the Cape. Most of them where I live are tame enough to land in your hand and chew some seeds

So of course I wanted to paint it.

Here's my pallet. I've been making an effort to use less than my normal 37flavors of tints tones and shades.

But I did use silver, blue interference, and titanium white for the background. Which makes the bird seem slightly more real in certain lighting.

Or just simply suited to the right room.
