A Painting a Day #2 Snowy Bird

A sweet little gray bird watching the snow fall. I wanted a soft subdued palette of colors and I think this does it nicely. This will be listed on etsy later tonight.

New Year New Projects

Hello and Happy Belated New Year! I hope to be posting here more often this year. I was busy during the fall and into the holidays with a few craft fairs and some local stores that I have items in. But what I want to challenge my self with this year is a painting a day. I want to be able to commit to that daily process, document it and hope to see a growth in my abilities. So today I am listing the painting that I did yesterday on etsy. I will probably focus on birds since I just love painting them.
This watercolor and pen and ink painting is done on a page from a vintage ledger book. I am not sure what the paper is made from, but it is lovely paper to work on. I titled it "Snowy Day Bird" since here in the north east we are getting pummeled again!
