Love doing these animals especially the parrot. I’ve never done a parrot or any bird. But I painted them like I paint the furry animals, close attention to the structure of their heads and to the textures. With Kukla, I used lift the color with semi-dry stiff brush to create the ends of the feathers. It was a great challenge!
To commission a portrait visit my Etsy shop. I offered pet portraits in either oils or watercolors.
I’ve been getting up around 5. So to make use of the time, I practice watercolor portraits. My goal is 30 then 50 and eventually 100. These are done on Strathmore Visual Journal, 140# watercolor paper. These are just a sampling.
Let’s Draw Davis sketchcrawl group met yesterday at the Davis Farmers Market. The weather was perfect after a week of rain and so it was packed with people. I capture the facepainting lady who is there every week. And then I attempted some people sketching…I was captivated with what people were wearing…such as the man with the red pants who was carrying a purple bag and wearing an oversized coat.
