American Dipper

Thanks Colleen, Ken, bigshent, Gaby and John!

Here is a watercolor (with some gouache) I just finished - 9x12 inches. Although most of what I'm doing with birds right now is the sketching project for my 2012 sightings, I decided to do this one. Most of my bird paintings are bird 'portraits' so I decided to do this one more as a bird-in-its-habitat painting. This is an American Dipper, a species that is confined to a small range in the western US mountains along cold, fast-moving streams. I'm not sure if there is a European or Eurasian equivalent of this bird - hopefully someone will let me know if there is.
