A watercolor painting in progress

Working on a painting of a strange bird character reading a letter.  Drawn on crescent watercolor board, the surface takes watercolor very smoothly and layers are easy to build on it. The head needs some lights pulled out and will add some color to the beak, and then I will continue to paint the rest.  I began this as a demo during an art guild presentation.  I like it so far and am enjoying the process.

  3. Just found this - love the luminous quality of reflected blue from his cap on his face - wish there were some larger images so I could really dig in and scrutinize the surfaces and textures. Great stuff!
