Something sweet to share with you today.
Hope your day is wonderful, friends! 💙😊
I just love to paint birds and flowers and was in the mood for something sweet. It started with a watercolor under painting.
Sorry about the quality of the photo, not great but it works.
I used a #6 round brush and started with the leaves. For the bird I built up the color with about 3 washes darkening each time. The flowers were last as I tried to balance things out.
At this point I was pretty happy with the painting but wanted more. So out came the pens… I was thoughtful about wanting to keep the softness of the piece which meant I needed to be careful with the amount of ink used.
I darkened the bird’s eye and added some light marks on the body and legs. Just a few small touches for the little guy and no outlining.
I tried to use some soft playful outlines on the flowers while using my regular bold outline on the leaves.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for following me on this journey.
Until next time, share a smile and sprinkle kindness everywhere!
