This week, the paintings are for the birds…

LF0217 USD 50.00
Watercolor on 12″ by 9″ Cold Pressed Paper

The first painting was inspired by a little bird that happened upon my window sill on the 6th floor.  His mom kept flying away and periodically came to provide him with some food.  The second painting was inspired by a photo of an exotic toucan.

Wisteria Tunnel

This weekend I virtually visited Japan.  I browsed a number of photos of Wisteria Tunnel which is in Kawachi Fuji Gardens, in Kitatyushu, Japan.  I have never been to Japan so I traveled via the Internet…  This painting is based on multiple photos and my own impressionistic style.

Cormorant Swimming Quietly

This painting was based on a photo taken by Steve.  I wanted to focus on the reflection in the water.

Bright Flowers Over Darkness

This was done in multiple layers.  First I did the dark wash in the background.  Then I applied Masking Fluid. Then I rubbed off the excess and the next day I painted in the flowers/swirls of color.
