It's easy to develop a fascination with these attractive and unusual looking finches, as I did while studying these eye-catching birds.
I played up the colors in the male, by adding the complementary bouquet of wildflowers. Just a slight touch of texture was applied. I never use very thick paint, but lately I like the "look" of thick paint, which the texture helps to produce.
