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!

Watercolour Wednesday – Bird #25 of 100 – Blackburnian Warbler

I chose this bird because he is such a cutie! I’ve never actually seen one, although they apparently migrate through our neck of the woods.

You can find out more about this little warbler HERE.

I’m a quarter of the way through my 100 birds series!
