Purple Finch in Watercolor.
After moving on from yesterday’s post and so grateful for the many kind comments and encouragement from so many of you, I decided to paint!
And it just so happens to be the 8th of the month, which is #DrawaBirdDay, so why not?! It’s been a while since I’ve participated.
I painted this little darlin’ on an odd-sized “scrap” of watercolor paper I had that was about 5×10″. I used Quinacridone Rose for the “purple” and mixtures of Curelean Blue, Yellow Ochre, and Rose for the browns/grays. I added an extra dash of Perylene Violet to the background just for kicks, used a white gel pen for some feathery “detail,” and finished with some signature splashes.
It was fun, and I like how it turned out.
Now I must go feed the birds!
Have a wonderfully fun day filled with doing something you love.
Cheers & Hugs,
