8x7in watercolor on paper $NFS
I started this one on day 6, but things got in
the way...like tennis finals and
Denver Bronco football.
No, not moi, but hubby is an avid watcher
of all sports..
When he became so ill last year I pulled
out my old watercolors so I could sit and be with
him on weekends as he watched whatever sport is on.
The golf is my favorite because I look
up and see the most beautiful views.
It is tranquil with good background noise
to paint with. By that I mean no screaming
with excitement as someone is being
smashed into the ground!
Anyway - about the painting.
It looked rather too old fashioned because
at first everything was so brown.
I used Chinese white to add to some blue
and washed it into the background.
This nest is made up of dead grasses
and I am thinking a solid dark
background would make it pop...
My week's avian/nature theme is at an end.
I start a new theme tomorrow
