When I use birds as subjects for my painting classes, I often start the students in black and white until they understand what we call "value" or "shades and tints." It is the first step to achieving good color. This little bird is shy and hides on the ground in the undergrowth. With a black head and back, it has beautiful little orange-red patches under its wings and a creamy tummy.
