6x8in watercolor on moleskin book paper SOLD
Whenever I do a series I venture into various media to explore
different effects. Here are a few of the watercolors I did.
The one above was the first of the watercolor sketches I did of the nests
I was experimenting with the fracturing technique using
the basic warm and cool colors. Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna.
Next came the one below - this time with less blue.
I dry brushed the really dark areas.

The one below is a watercolor of a cactus wren's nest
on YES multi media canvas. I added some ochre and pale yellow
to the palette and was careful not to use a staining color.
I found it easier to fracture in watercolor on the canvas than the paper.
I painted a dark shape for the nest and lifted out the shapes for
light nest material. I actually placed the wren in this one.
My computer is acting weird and I keep
trying to download some of the others, but it is not working
going to have to let this be the last one.
Tomorrow I will show some of the others from the show.
