For the Love of Birds

Ostrich watercolor

Ahh, those sweet and silly feathered friends… I continue on this journey having a great time painting birds. Today I have both a sweet and silly bird to share with you.

My first bird is a little cutie sitting on a branch surrounded by pink flowers. If I was a bird, I would probably pick this same spot to hangout for a while.

Painted in my 7×10 inch Canson watercolor sketchbook using Daniel Smith and Winsor and Newton watercolors. It was nice to be able to work on detail as well as loose flowers. I love the tiny legs and feet of this little bird, and pink flowers make me happy.

My next painting is a cute and silly Ostrich. I love her beak and am very happy with the pretty eye and lashes. This is one of my favorite birds to paint!

Painted in my 7×10 inch Canson mix media sketchbook. I used small watercolor brushes (both round and rigger) with light playful brushstrokes for most of the bird. The smooth mix media paper worked well for this style of painting.
