Watercolors: Eurasian Bullfinch

Eurasian Bullfinch

I got myself  in the mood to paint a bird again. This time I wanted a bird with red, gray, blue, yellow and black tones. Pondering which birds wear those colors, I came up with the Bullfinch. This one here would be a male for its brighter red breast.

The Bullfinch, Common Bullfinch, or Eurasian Bullfinch, Pyrrhula is a passerine bird in the finch family. This bird breeds across Europe and temperate Asia. It is mainly resident, but many northern birds migrate further south in the winter.

  1. I was just visiting Linda Halcomb’s blog and she has a drawing of a bird and then I stop over here and YOU have a painting of a bird. Hmmm, Was there a memo I missed. 🙂

    Nice painting. I do like your bird.

    • Hi Carol, bet your glad the weekend is finally here…yeehaw!!…three days off!
      No, there was no memo that I know of. Her last memo was of the End of Spring Challenge. I’m glad you like the painting.

  2. The bird looks as if he’s eying something. Maybe a juicy worm.

    • He just may be doing that, Binky. He could use a little fattening up. 🙂 Thank you for commenting, Binky!

  3. I love the colours in this piece Debbie, especially in the chest of the bullfinch. It’s also one of my favourite subjects.
