Finished with acrylic varnish

Blue birds and cardinals are so pretty in the snow. We have many feeders and I love to watch them, take pictures of them, and to sketch and paint them. I started this one in pastel pencil then used watercolor, colored pencil and acrylic paint with a final coat of acrylic semi-gloss varnish for protection.
