Today I was doing some design assignment since early morning and thought let’s take a break for sometime. It’s been almost a week I haven’t open my WordPress app! I saw few post from my fellow artist friends and it reminded me it’s a Bird Day today! God how can I forget? It’s already 8th of this month! Time flies so fast. I haven’t missed a single bird day since I started contributing to this Laura’s initiative of Draw A Bird Day on 8th of every month.
Then I immediately turned off my iMac and open my watercolor notebook thinking what should I paint for this month’s DABD! Whenever I think of painting birds I quickly visit to Kathy’s Backyard there I have plenty of choices 😍 This Handsome Cardinal I found in her backyard. Thanks so much Kathy for a wonderful click and sharing with us this natural beauty!
For this painting, I wanted to keep it simple and quick. So decided to do it loosely. I have used WN colors on 140 lb CP watercolor paper. Added little ultramarine blue to add an accent to all these warm colors.
I hope my birdie is still there in this months DABD! He is wishing you a Happy Monday too! Have a great week ahead!
Thank you for visiting!
