Paint a beautiful Fantail/pīwakawaka in flight! Known for its friendly ‘cheet cheet’ call and energetic flying antics, the fantail is one of the most common native birds in New Zealand

You will use feathery brush strokes to build the main object, with warm blue tones for the sea and sky. For the reflections in the water, you will use subtle strokes of white paint, and to achieve a misty look, you will paint the mountains without clear borderd.
