African Paradise Flycatcher


#Doodlewash prompt: bluebird. I know. My bird is more orange than blue, but it’s a bird and there is lots of blue, so I’m going with it!

Did you know that the tail of the African Paradise Flycatcher can double in length during breeding season, reaching lengths up 12 inches (30 cm). That’s just the tail!

Done with Butterfly Peaflower Tea, watercolor and gouache on Hahnemühle Agave Cold-Press watercolor paper with ZenArt Black Tulip brushes.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
