Two birds, a nuthatch and a wren, wear their winter hats to keep their little heads warm as they look for yummy berries in the snow.

I used Strathmore illustration board, drew out my design in colored pencil and then did my painting with watercolor and acrylic paint.  It is finished with a few coats of acrylic varnish.
