Lilac Breasted Roller, Botswana, Africa.....

Drawspace has a new water colour challenge this week. Marisa put up some beautiful pictures with lots of colour in them. Like this Lilac Breasted Roller from Botswana Africa.
I did this water colour painting in my moleskin sketch book. I really am enjoying using water colours. It is fun to see how quickly a picture can take shape. Although I do find that I need to get some patience for giving the paint time to dry and thinking out layers of colours.
