Saffron Finch WC

There’s a lot going on here, maybe too much. The base image is of a Saffron Finch taken in Hawaii. I used a wide collection of watercolor brushes from both Photoshop and Seven Styles, painted in by hand on my tablet. Topaz Studio provided contrast. clarity and detail. Corel Painter provided texture. No actions were used, except for the frame. Lots of layers and blending. I struggle with knowing what the watercolor brushes are going to do, but that seems to be the nature of watercolors.
