So with Little Birds being the challenge over at Creative Tuesdays I painted a few, not all with the same success I might add. These were the one I liked the best.
This one might not be a little bird, but it was done on a little piece of paper 2.5x3.5 inches.
Pen lines added after the paint.
A very loose pencil sketch with paint added over the top. Smudged splogges are optional!
An acrylic ink one, dropping colour into wet areas. I just love the effect that the spreading blue gives on this, just like fluffy feathers. It gets very exciting as you have no control whatsoever! I have a fascination using inks this way, as you cannot predict the outcome.
I have not just been painting birds, oh no, flowers by the bucket load. I liked this one so much I actually framed it. Now that is a first for me! Framing my work.
Sorry for the rather long post but I am having such fun experimenting with my watercolours.
There should be a flock of birds over on the CT blog, go check then out.
