It’s Wednesday, but this ain’t a Watercolour! Scarlet Tanager Bird #42 of 100

Okay, it started our innocently enough as a watercolor, but it wasn’t speaking to me. It had sat on my work table for almost two months. Yesterday, I got out my small arsenal of acrylic paint, pastel and coloured pencils, and other miscellaneous stuff. Voila! The Scarlet Tanager! It sounds like a superhero name, right? Well, to me it does.

Once again, my camera refused to recognise the deep variations of yummy turquoise in the background. Even my photo editing program couldn’t get it right. So imagine that when you look at this painting, please!

  1. I love it! Yes, the name, The Scarlet Tanager, does sound a bit like a superhero or an Ellery Queen or Agatha Christie mystery…”The Case of the Scarlet Tanager” lol. I do see a good bit of variation in the turquoise background but perhaps not as much as the original! Lovely painting!
