Shining Honeycreeper

Good morning…The swirling watercolor background was intended for a mosaic. But, when I painted the Shining Honeycreeper (Cyanerpes lucidus), on black paper, I thought the combination looked very tropical. The Honeycreeper is found in Central America.

I ‘ll be on a vacation for a few days, so I’ll be posting again at the end of next week. Have a good week ahead.

I love making mosaics using random watercolor squares. Here are a couple from my Saturday art making. #worldwatercolormonth

Happy Sunday!

Size: 5″ x 6.5″ watercolor and watercolor pencils
mosaic squares are 1″ x 1″

Size:  6″ x 9″ watercolor,  mosaic squares 1″ x 1″.

The sky was patted dry with a paper towel and an added bonus the paper texture was left in the paint.
