Fledgling Bluebird

Hot off the press–a fledgling bluebird painted by my daughter. This was another lesson she adapted for watercolors from the book, “Painting Garden Birds” with Sherry C. Nelson. I love the texture she used to suggest feathers, and I particularly like the fluffy cheek and breast feathers. The budding rose is quite lovely, too. Watercolors and acrylic ink on cold pressed Acquarello Artistico paper by Fabriano.

Cardinals and Dogwood Blossoms Completed

Watercolors on cold pressed Canson Aquarelle/Acuarela paper. This is my daughter’s version of the same watercolor painting that I’m currently working on. She beat me to the finish line, so she gets top billing tonight. And she deserves it; I think she did an amazing job on this painting.
