Background Studies

Hi every one
I will presents research (?) studies of backgrounds.
The two woodcocks were in photos in a magazine, and i just stylize the grass. It was at my beginings, so the watercolor is a bit laborious, i did not know you had to wet anything at that time ;-) .. but these two paintings were the begining of a long story, that still last.
I did not discover black china ink either. So the black background was done with a fine felt pen. It was very difficult to follow one blade of grass among that mixed salad, some are lost, and come from nowhere.
The second one is more stylized. I called her my Louis XV's woodcock. The background reminds me the japan lac they used to paint on chest on early XVIII th s. french style.
When he saw these paintings, a collector commissioned me for all birds you can shoot in the world by paires. So it will be a long long story.
This was the first chapter.

the first woodcock seems to be photo-shy

These are lovely, CJ. I like your idea of portraying the bird amidst the white grasses - almost as if nesting.

You are right... their official name are "woodcocks in their nest"
sorry to have published the photo twice... yesterday, the first one
did not appear on the first thread. That is why i wrote she was photo-shy.

In fact, their were 3. The third one was in a fern nest
But this painting has been stolen in an exhibition. I could have been angry. I decided to be proud of it. Someone took the risk to sole one of my paintings, because he loved it.

Vive la vie !

Yes It could have been years of work
But I told him I did not want to have a unic client, so he will have to be patient. I promised him 4 paintings a year.
I will post them on WC soon. Some are interesting in techniques.
