Blue Waxbill

I’ve enjoyed painting these little birds the past couple of weeks. Here’s another little bird, called a Blue Waxbill, from Southern Africa. The bright, bright blue contrasted against the copper breast is just stunning, it’s such a naturally gorgeous bird. I added a bit of gold mica leaf to the breast, just to really make it pretty and shimmery. I love this little bird so much that I decided to put it on a greetings card. So, you can pick up a little original painting on a card, to send to a friend or family member. πŸ™‚ The Blue Waxbill painting has been added to the new greeting card shop online, so go and have a look now.
I was inspired by a photographer I saw on Instagram – and I believe it may have been in the Nat Geo account! – @nickybluephoto
