6x8in watercolor SOLD
This is a wee bit more whimsical than I usually paint so it was relaxing
I have a friend who has an abundance of bird houses and she calls
them her rental business!
The red one is my favorite... and it always fills first.
Dean asked yesterday if I used gouache.
If you are reading this, Dean - I use Chinese White.
I do use opaque watercolors like Yellow Ochre and
Cerulean Blue but have not broken into the gouache yet.
I enjoy the Chinese White and I think we called it "body color"
...back in the day. I use it to cool some of the colors
as well as adding light in places - like on the roofs in this one.
