Good Catch! Watercolour Version of Heron Sketch – Bird #50 of 100

This is a watercolour version of the sketch I did of the Great Blue Heron fishing on the coast of Nova Scotia. I painted this on a 5 X 7″ scrap of unknown watercolour paper. For some reason, the paint did some funky stuff at the top, I’ve decided I kind of like the added texture! I’ve called this Good Catch, because he caught that little slippery eel so easily.

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!

Wild Wednesday! Rose Breasted Grosbeak – Bird #41 of 100

Yeah, I went a little wild with this one! I think the heat is getting to me. It started out innocently enough as a nice watercolour, but I thought it was a bit dull. I started adding different media to it (as I tend to do), and it winded up looking like this. Not sure how I feel about it, and I may do it again, but here it is!
