House Finch, not Purple Finch?
Well I was kind of confused, thinking that a house finch and a purple finch were the same bird, but I found out different. This is a house finch. I wanted to draw a purple finch because it's the state bird of New Hampshire, so I better find some more reference. They are very similar, and neither are really purple, more a a raspberry red. Why? I have no idea, but I will try to find out! Maybe the person who named the purple finch was color blind!!! I have more to do to darken him up and finish the branch and I think I may add a bit of a background to bring out his color.
