Red-backed Shrike

Another watercolor but this time free hand with no pre-drawn guide lines or outlines.

I went for sketch book style again and over worked it, added too much shadows on the tail..head too tall and not wide enough and the bird is generally not “fat” enough.
Here is a link to the original photo (taken by myself): http://www.pbase.com/johncostello/image/135042786

I’m pleased anyway because yet again I can pick out what I done wrong and learn from it.
