I painted these two birds yesterday. The first is a copy of the work of the talented watercolorist-blogger. I saved a copy in April 2009 and only now found the courage to repeat. I am so sorry, because I remember that I wrote to the author and asked permission to copy her work. Permission was granted. And now, it took one and a half years, and I can not remember the name of artist. I'm sooo ashamed ...
UPDATED. Sandy Maudlin (link) helped me to find the author. It is Mary Jane Noe (link) and her watercolors are so beautiful and painted by talented hand.
The second bird - my own, although I repeated a lot in the same technique. Limited palette (yellow ochre, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue), the contrast of warm and cool colors, the isolation of the object by darkening the background.
And one more thing. I draw the birds on Daler-Rowney 300gr. and I like the paper very much.
Drawing - it is happiness and joy to the mind and soul ..
