I've just finished this Long-tailed Tit plate showing the 2 European subspecies. This is for an article in Dutch Birding.
I used gouache for this piece as I wanted to have experience with this medium (I used it many years ago, but turned to acrylic). I want to know whether gouache is better for painting soft plumages and fur. I've added some acrylic to these birds eg. for the whitest parts of them. Probably I'll use these 2 mediums mixed in the future for my plates.
















Here's an older Long-tailed Tit illustration done in acrylic for comparison:
