Few days ago I started following Kathy at Backyard Bird Nerd and her beautiful bird photography couldn’t resist me to paint them. Thank you so much Kathy for such incredible photos sharing with us 🙂
Yesterday I bought new Artist’s Loft Watercolor Pad (Level 2). I never tried this brand earlier I always used Strathmore. I painted both this paintings on new book but I would love to go with Strathmore.
It’s long time I was just playing with loose watercolor style, so I painted this Warbler in detail. It’s always good to switch the techniques that you won’t get bored 😉 I used Olive Green & Crome Yellow for bird. I just changed the bg to sky 🙂
This one is my all time favourite bird. It was so hard to choose from this wonderful photographs. Finally I decided to go with Cardinal. 🙂
In this one I just concentrated on bird, other things I have added as a suggestive forms (used green to show as there are trees in the background). I Outlined it in Microns and then started with colors.
Have a nice weekend ahead! Thank you for visiting 🙂
