Evening Flight

Playing around with watercolour. This one turned out horribly and needed to be rescued digitally.

I haven't worked in watercolour in such a long time and I'm discovering that I'm am more than just rusty!!

How's the saying go: "If you don't use it, you'll loose it!

I'm going to keep trying though. I enjoy working in paint and I like the idea of having more than a couple of well developed skills under my hat.

Om Shanti

Your feathered creatures are always amazing. And the general tone of the sky in this one gives the piece a very delicate softness. A great piece indeed.

Excellent! I love to see the use of real paint instead of all digital once in a while! This is very well done! :)

Great job! My children were standing next to me while I looked at the image and they both loved it.:heart:

Well saved then! I can't see where the digital work has been done at all. I concur with Ben, too. The fabulous angle of those legs gives this little scene so much drama!

Regardless of how it came about... it turned out beautifully. Wonderful work.

ps, Not sure if you've ever seen my gallery, if you feel so inclined, feel free to stop by for a look.

Keep up the great work! Kind regards,

Would you like to take a water colour course with me at our favourite art centre? :)

Pretty great Pat! It's a real joy seeing how you expertly handled the bird's wings and legs. Those lovely sideways-balancing legs bring most of the life to this piece.
