Fine and Dandy

Good Morning , over the weekend I created this Fine and Dandy Raven. I enjoy making the water color collage papers and I’m always surprised the colorful patterns, endless fun.. The background is watercolor and watercolor pencil.

Have a creative day!

Collage Bird Takes Flight

Happy Sunday! I spent several hours of joyful art making and my colorful bird takes flight.

This is how the bird started….Derwent watercolor and Sharpie fine line black pen. 6″ x 9″

and…after some cutting and pasting the bird is soaring high. The background is made with Derwent watercolor and watercolor pencil. 9″ x 10.5″

Draw a Bird Day

Good Morning – I don’t always make the 8th of the month for Draw a Bird Day, but today I have two birds to share.

Watercolor and watercolor pencil… House Sparrow

I received a catalog in the mail for window treatments, so I used the different patterns for the a dandy collage bird.

Layers of Color

Greetings…Today’s post is multi layers of color. I started with painting a pattern with watercolor. I then lightly drew the flower shape and painted a thin glaze of bright blue over the background. I added several layers of colored pencil texture so the flower color would pop. I’m happy with the results.

These two designs were made several years ago, similar technique.
