One more :rolleyes: 10 minutes to draw/40 to paint...8x5.5 watercolor on Strathmore Visual Journal done today. A pencil drawing was done lightly to mark outlines then watercolor put in over areas wet with #8, #10 round brushes. A fairly limited palette used of ultramarine and Prussian blues, quinacridones burnt orange and gold, Bice and Periwinkle blues (American Journey). When dry I used small amounts of white and Coastal Fog (AJ) on the sparrow's breast. Background is loose and abstract with diagonal lines indicative of branches or twigs; splattering with Blue Bice applied when dry. I cropped our right side, the bird's left for a better view close up and eliminated much bg details. Thanks AvengingManatee for the reference.
C&C welcome :cool:

I love this Kay! Especially the splatters of (guessing) cerulean blue? You are definitely a speed painter!

What a handsome fellow, and he has great substance ! Thank you for describing your journey to get to this beautiful place. And 'Bice blue' - entirely new to me ! Thank you.

Blue Bice hue is a mix of cobalt blue, amorphous carbon, thalo green, and titanium white. Although it is an opaque, I use it alone or at the end such as splatters you see here. It is expensive but Cheap Joe's has it on sale now.
