Hello friends! It has been a while since I've been posting here. It's a long story, but I will sum it up with one word..... LIFE.
But, I am back, and I've been making art. Watercolor, pastels, pen and ink, line and wash, colored pencil, and drawing/sketching, along with Zentangle.
This is my latest watercolor. I created it in a paint-along/tutorial by Kathy with Sunset Peonies. Here is a link to Kathy's blog/tutorial https://sunsetpeonies.com/spring-bird-on-pink-blossom-branch-watercolor-paint-along-tutorial-demo/
I found Kathy's style very relaxing, and her instructions were clear and very well conveyed. She is an amazing teacher, and extremely talented artist. I plant to take more of her tutorials.
I used Daniel Smith watercolors, on a Canson XL watercolor pad for my journal.
I will be painting more birds for a while, trying to build my technique. Practice is the key, so the more birds I paint, the better I should get.
I will be posting here again, so if you are still with me, I hope you will come back. I will post some of the other work I have been creating.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
