July is World Watercolor Month. If you post art that uses watercolor or gouache, add the tag #WorldWatercolorMonth and be part of this huge yearly event!

Today, my hubby took a Sunbird in his lunchbag. Sunbirds and hummingbirds are very similar in size, coloration and feeding habits but are not closely related. Hummingbirds are closely related to swifts while sunbirds are related to crows!

The Doodlewash prompt for today is #PrimaryPalette. I do have blue, yellow and red in this painting, though I admit that I’ve also got iridescent gold, silver and pearl! Those are the iridescent primaries, right? Lol.
