Re: JULY Watermedia Challenge!

Bonnie, love the crop and your background works well, too!
Hydie, your crop focuses on three of the little cuties and is very effective!

Thank you, Kay, I forgat to wet the back. It has been a long time that I did watercolours properly, maybe I should read my books again

Re: JULY Watermedia Challenge!



Here's my butterfly -- on a rock prepped with watercolor ground and then spray varnished.

Kay, sorry about your Mom. You did a good job on your butterfly, and the parakeets are coming along nicely.

Christel -love your parakeets

Tyree -- I love your ducks. The comibination of splash technique and ink lines give your work such a unique look.

EP -nice job with both paintings.

Viviian -- I love your Budgies and the b/g as well.

Christine - those carrots are amazing!!!

Marianne - great job - love the boldness of the background

Deb- sorry for your double loss. I'm glad you were able to work through with your art.

Lily - good job with the complicated scene!

Jayjay - those two parakeets are just adorable. I think you're being way too hard on yourself.

Fana -- well done on both

Isobel - I agree - the crayons are hard to control. You did a very good job.

Bonnie -- love your parakeets.

Hydgirl -- lovely crop and nice painting

Re: JULY Watermedia Challenge!

Christel - It is so good to see all the birds. I cropped some out. Love the colors and the background.

Tyree - Love the Orange background and the splattering of orange around. The line work adds to the beauty of the limited color scheme.

EP - Nice effective sketches.

Viv - Beautiful soft background and the chirpy birds.

Christine - Gorgeous looking carrots.

Marianne - The background colors is awesome.

Kay - Sorry for your loss. Hope you find much peace through art. Your backgrounds are always creative. The birds painting is much like the Chinese style. The magenta pink background is beautiful.

Lily - Good work on the building and laundry.

Jayjay - The birds look fine to me and the background is fine too.

Fana - Neat work on the butterfly and birds.

Isobel - Nice work on the bird.

Bonnie - Love the colors and the neat work.

Bunny - Nice idea to paint on a rock. Beautiful work.

Re: JULY Watermedia Challenge!

Kay - interesting shapes to your piece as it stands in post 68 ... I wonder now it looks after you added a fantastic Kay bg.... ker-POW look at that fantastic bg! (post 78)!

Fana - good proportions on the butterfly. Your two budgies are keeping a look out behind the other so nobody can surprise them

Isobel - aww look at that plump little guy ...

Bonnie - I think you captured the chattiest of those group of birds

Hydie - Love how they are "looking out" for each other

Bun - on a rock how creative! and thank you

Re: JULY Watermedia Challenge!

Thanks Hydie and EP! I've not added a second wash yet and may not as I don't want it to overpower the birds.

Re: JULY Watermedia Challenge!

I did the butterfly on paper, and I gave the parakeets a try to add to the collection.
