    1. The drawing itself was not that difficult for me. I draw birds since my early childhood... But the most difficult thing is to put watercolor on my drawing. My medium is acrylic or more than watercolor. I try to use a yellow wash above olive-green back of the bird (on the greater, medium, and lesser covers). The eye is not exactly round because the head is a little bit turned. I always try to paint some little point around the (= eyering) around the eye! I directly saw from where the light is coming on the photo and put shade under the right-wing and not far from the tail. Drawing from a photo is easy because I can always look precisely at it and see what is correct or wrong. I only concentrate on trying to represent the bird the best I can. I know how to paint a branch and increase it's roundness take into account the shade and light! 2. If I had to paint that bird for nature journaling, I think I might to try to draw the bird faster and put only a little bit of color (with water colored pencils more than watercolor). I probaly will add some details of the lichen and leaves...

    Oh! You are very lucky to see that rare and endangered wood warbler species that breeds in old-growth hardwood forests! Beautifull sketch too!
