A quick post today with a few watercolor birds. I’m guessing you are probably not surprised to see a few more bird paintings. 🙂
I painted this little bird last month. I really like the green background and the contrast of the soft bird next to the rough branch.

This week I worked on painting a Tern, or beach bird as I like to call them. I just love that the Tern has a crazy cool hairstyle. My hair would probably look like that too if I played at the beach all day. 🙂
I was a bit worried about painting sand. I tried to vary the direction of the brush strokes when putting down the color. I hoped that making the sand look uneven would give it a more realistic look. I think it was a good exercise. I like that the sand softly fades off into the distance behind my beach bird.
