Black Bird Watercolour IV by shmeeden Black Bird Watercolour IV by shmeeden
Another new original piece on paper.

7" x 5", watercolour, ink, and gouache on cold-pressed paper.

These little watercolours have been both good fun and a great challenge, and I'm learning more and more with each piece!

EDIT: This piece has now sold, but I now have signed and matted prints available! Here, on Etsy: [link]

Nice watercolor work. It looks like you had fun with this piece. I particularly love the hues chosen and how simple you made the eye of the crow/raven. Great piece! :aww:
