Watercolor Wednesdays - Thumbelina

This week's prompt for Watercolor Wednesday is from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale Thumbelina: "Perhaps this was the one who sang to me so sweetly in the summer," [Thumbelina] said; "and how much pleasure it gave me, you dear, pretty bird."

This is such a sad, sweet part of the story - where Thumbelina finds a dead little bird and she cares for it in it's death. Mouse and Mole are too busy carrying on with business to even bat an eye at the misfortune of the bird.
