This was a very challenging image for me to color. I made one a number of years ago that was, frankly, terrible! But I love this Partridge in a Pear Tree, so I decided to try again. This time, I took an hour or so researching, and came up with a picture (bottom of the three) of a partridge here. (This type is called a Roul Roul Partridge). I made the feet a little deeper red to be more Christmasy. As long as I was doing a more fantasmic coloring job, I wanted a Christmas red! The partridge was stamped and colored separately, then attached over the original gold-embossed image for a bit of a 3-D look. (Ahem ... and also because I didn't want to remake the entire panel, so I used the horrible one, and covered it up with the newly colored partridge!)
