10 Minute Color Drop Bird


Well, I got up my courage and painted a color drop bird. I have always wanted to paint birds and really haven't had much success at all. So I decided to sketch one out from a Dover bird book and flooded in the color and blotted up for a light source as we do in the Color Drop Flower class. He is on a scrap piece of paper and I would have continued more leaves but I ran out of paper. He was fun to do. I think that I will try some more and drop in some Dr. Martins Ph Concentrated watercolors. Then they they will really be bright. I used the sumi-e brush. He was fun and...yes...quick!! You know me...I am into instant gratification!

Instant gratification is good...and it comes after years of practice. I hope you've got a color drop bird class in you after the poppies, which I will sign up for, too.
Love it all. You're amazing.
