WIP Western Tanager bird

This is my latest bird portrait I'm working on, a western tanager.  I was attracted to it's colorful feathers.  I'm using Schmincke gouache.  I sketched his body first and then have slowly started to build up the color.  I'm using a #4 round brush and a #1 liner brush for the detail.  Finished piece will be on 6" x 8" mixed media paper.
