Yellow

I went birdwatching in Magee Marsh the other day and was absolutely mystified by the beautiful yellow coloration of the magnolia, blackburnian, yellow and prothonatary warblers.

I also got to see a few lifebirds that day: glossy ibis and american woodcock; so look forward to seeing some future artwork inspired by these too!

I apologize for the crappy colors in this: I had to photograph this on a cloudy day (i live in ohio- it's always cloudy). I had to adjust the colors in photoshop so a lot of the little feather details kind of got washed away. I will try to get a better version up soon though! :)

beautiful! very yellowy! you should do a calendar with this theme.
JacquelineRae's avatar
Thanks!

I attempted a blue one right after this, but there were too many birds and butterflies in it- it didn't have as much, dare I say, biodiversity as this one! I guess there just aren't that many blue animals...

Dart frogs!
Fish!
Dragonflies!
Beatles!

oh my goodness there are lots of blue animals Jacqueline my dear.

Purple would be harder to do, I think.
JacquelineRae's avatar
I attempted that, but the fish didn't look right swimming next to the birds and bugs, lol. I think I'm going to try my hand at pen and ink here shortly... we'll see if I ever get the time though.
JoeMacGown's avatar
Yeah, blues are a bit unusual. There is a really cool blue cactus moth larva, I could probably email you a picture of one if you like. I loved the little salamander...
Khylov's avatar
I can see the Haeckel influence - but I like your renditions much, much better. Cool colors, and cool line weight to contrast between the animals. Am diggin the salamander on the top right.

Wow, what an awesome compliment! Thank you so much!

Ha! My wife and I just took our nephew to the Kortright Nature Centre this week, and we saw the same black-capped fellow on the right of your painting. It's a good season for spotting brightly colored birds.

Jacqueline, your composition and colour choices have moved past excellent into astounding, if I may say so.
