As I decided to paint the male Chaffinch I was looking forward to painting the colourful plumage.
Part of this is a memory from my childhood, I must have been 8 or 9 years old and I was at school. The teacher was reading a story.
Meanwhile I was drawing and from time to time looking out of the window.
From where I sat I suddenly noticed this beautiful bird! It had such amazing colours, I had never seen this bird before, I had discovered a new bird, I was sure of it!!
At home I immediately grabbed my book about songbirds and found out the bird already had been discovered, it was the male chaffinch.
