I chose the white capped noddy birds, mama holding her wing over Junior. This is at the 2 hour mark:

One more hour and about 20 minutes:

11x15 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper/Daniel Smith paints. I cropped into the photo to position the birds closer to the left edge looking out of the nest. Lots of the tree branches are negatively painted. Thanks, Christine for hosting :clap:
C&C welcome :rolleyes:

So beautiful Kay - love the crop (why didn't I think of that?duh!) and the negative b/g painting ... birds and colour are superb.

I've just posted my version - hadn't seen yours then - you sorted the wing bit out much better!:D

Super painting! Love how you have tucked the baby under mommy's protective wing...gorgeous Kay. Nice to see your starting point of the painting and the finish with the lovely negative twigs and leaves!

Beautiful, love the light on the birds and how your negative painting makes the BG recede.

Beautiful work on this. Love the back ground and always interesting to see how different ones approach a painting.
