A BIRD IN THE HAND - WIP & Final Image

Howdy Folks! Well here he is, finished at last! Why does it take so long to complete a picture? Because I tend to use my acrylic gouache and water-colour as I would tempera; lots of layers and a slow build up of colour depth. The greens of our hero's out-fit for instance is made up of,  at  the very least, six layers of colour. The same goes for the grass at his feet. I know an awful lot of labour intensive work but I think it's worth it myself.  What do you think Folks? I'd love to know.
Cheers for now. RWS.
