Three Birds

with 4 comments

I painted this from my own still life – the first ever I am painting. I own these three bird curios and they sit on the mantle above the fireplace. But painting them was so darn difficult. I almost gave up because I had a hard time not to get too bogged down on the details. The temptation was too overwhelming. I did not include most of the details when I finally decided not to ditch it.

Almost 9 by 12 inches on Strathmore Bristol plate

Loire Valley,France

with 2 comments

The painting Loire Valley is done after the March painting challenge from A Day Not Wasted blog in watercolors. I have been wanting to do street scenes in watercolors and this challenge presented a perfect opportunity for me. I am unsure of how the final outcome is. The visitors to this blog can let me know. Thanks for dropping by! NOT FOR SALE.
