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.
