The blue really contrasts well with the yellow of the bird, Harald!

Oh, Harald, your little bird is ever so cute.

What medium did you use?  It looks like oil.

I haven't had a brush in my hand for weeks.  Thought a good way to get going again is with the challenge.  The sky in this is challenging with watercolor.  Here is my attempt:


Watercolor on arches 140lb paper.

 :eek: Should have put handcuffs on. I fiddled....after I promised myself I wouldn't.  :knuppel2: It wouldn't take any more pastel so I guess that means I'm really done! Ah well, here we go then....

Cheers, Val

 :clap: Elizabeth, Harald, njnjgirl, Val, for giving this cute guy a chance.
A most challenging subject for sure, yet each one of you found and reflected its charm very well.
