I have not blogged for a long time and wanted to get back to posting at least two to three times a week, at a minimum. I have been painting a lot and lately, have been getting more and more into watercolor. Here is my latest watercolor. I'm playing with keeping the background loose, drawing all of the attention to the star of the show. I used some salt on the neck of the bird to create a different texture and some in the background as well. This painting is 11x15.
The painting has been done with White Nights artists quality watercolors from Russia. They are absolutely wonderful- semi moist and bright, as well as very economical.
