After doing so many pale watercolors, I wanted to do something bold!
Next in my series of hummers using my new technique, here is an Allen’s. I did this one slightly different and tried going back in once it was partially dried and added some more color since it felt a little flat. I’m not sure if I like it better or not. Thoughts?
I was at the beach the other day watching little brown sparrows hopping around. I really liked the play of the brown rocks covered with brown birds with the bright blue ocean in the background, so I wanted to see if I could replicate that feeling without actually painting an ocean. I hope you enjoy!
I’ve been enjoying the Lesser Goldfinches that have taken over my backyard the last few months. I thought that I should paint one.
I still keep feeling that my watercolors don’t reflect the constant movement of birds, so I’ve been trying out different techniques to try to capture that feeling. I think that this splatter effect works well.
