When a Plan comes Together
Still enjoying painting a few of these small watercolor/acrylic pieces. I go through my photos of the birds and find several that I like. Then I try to envision what kind of background will best highlight the bird. I do several abstract pieces of paper, using different colors, compositions, etc. When I like the background, then I begin to paint the bird in acrylic onto the watercolor paper. Hopefully, when finished, the plan all comes together!
