 I chose to paint a Bluethroat for my latest piece of art. I also went smaller this time, around A4 size. 

 I had to get the blue just right, they are such a stunning bird which I have been lucky enough to see all the variations, all lumped under the name Bluethroat but quite different with some showing a white spot on the throat,no spot at all and some with a red spot. This is of the white spotted variety ranging through Southern and Central Europe.
