Little Birdie Watercolor Paintings

Okay, so I ended up actually making something else tonight :) Not as ill as I thought, I suppose...
I did everything with my watercolors and a sharpie pen to do the outlining. I wish I would have taken in-progress shots, with the line drawings before coloring, but I forgot. Next time...
This is my favorite of the three...

There's something about birds that rest with thier tails up, or hyper birds like jays and cardinals that hop around and flick up their tails... I just like them!

I love the red tummy one the best. Is it hard to keep the watercolor in the lines? Do you draw with pencil first?

It's not too difficult if you use a smaller brush... Otherwise I just use frisket. Yep, most of the time I do a pencil sketch first, then sharpie-pen over it.
