While looking for something fun to sketch, this lovely red flower caught my eye. I snapped the photo below with my phone while visiting Leu Gardens this spring. A nice flower to sketch with some interesting shapes.

Backyard Cutie

This little beauty visits the feeder often. I was pretty excited when he dropped by and I was able to snap a few photos of him.

tufted titmouse - lovely

I love those big eyes! It looks like he is checking out what’s for dinner.

I was inspired to paint my little backyard friend. I decided to keep things simple and just paint him perched on a branch. I added a fun splashy background to finish up the painting. I may have had a little too much fun with that background but oh well… πŸ˜‰

Paper:Β  7×10 inch Arches watercolor block
Daniel Smith watercolor paint:
Cobalt blue, Ultramarine Blue, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, and Yellow Ochre

Additional details added with a .005 black micron pen and a white gel pen.

Another happy fella at the backyard feeder.

Watercolor Tips:

Over time the tip of your brushes and pens can wear down. Be sure to replace those that have become worn.

I still get a little uptight when a few paintings in a row don’t work out as planned. I’ve found the best thing for me is to hang in there, loosen up, and keep on going. The important thing to remember is to enjoy the process and have fun.

Thank you for stopping by and following along. I hope you enjoy seeing my work and are inspired to create art and do something fun. Until next time, have a great week.

Happy Painting!
