So here´s my birdie two days late. It has to do with Frankfurt am Main again. I painted a bluethroat (“Blaukehlchen” in German). While it was a common bird here some decades ago, there are only a few couples of them left in the greenbelt areas of Frankfurt. But in the federal state of Hessen the number of bluethroats is increasing again, which makes me quite happy as this is such a pretty little animal. I wouldn´t have thought that a small bird like this could be a migrant bird, but it overwinters in the south of Spain, the north of Africa, and even south of the Sahara.
The painting is watercolour and coloured pencil. I´m not completely happy with it because I lack the looseness I achieved in other paintings. But anyway, it´s the first bird I painted in a longer time, so the next one is gonna be better. 😊
