Four Bird Paintings in One

 Watercolour: 'Birds in Red, Yellow and Blue'
Colour was as much a part of choosing which birds went in this piece as the type of bird. A triad of the primary colours red, blue and yellow were choosen. Blue being the dominant colour, shades of yellow in 2 of the paintings and a touch of red in the woodpecker.
Creston, British Columbia is known as 'Valley of the Swans' and the landscape is of the 'Creston Flats'.
