BUT enough rambling, instead I am just going to show you pictures of all the paintings I've made.
|This was the first painting I made. I was playing with different techniques and colors, which was interesting. Very different from painting with Acrylics/Oils, which I am more used to.|
|This is a European Robin, and is the first "real" painting I made. I made it for Sasha's brother. But I was fairly pleased with the way the painting turned out for it being my first "real" watercolor painting since high school.|
|Hey look, not a bird! This is based on a picture I took in the Dolomites.|
|This is a blue tit, which is a Blauemeise in German, and was a secret santa present. I really like how the branch turned out, (it looks better in person) although the bird's head shape is a bit too broad, and I don't love the top right corner.|
|These are a pair of bee eaters, and they are for a friend's birthday in a few months. The back bird is a bit too big, but overall, I feel OK with the way it turned out. Sshh...it is a secret! (I'm not very good at keeping secrets).|
|This is for Sasha, because Southern Cassowary is one of his all-time favorite birds. I really like the head, although am not super satisfied with the black feathers. Tons of black is hard to make look good.|
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the change of pace, and I hope the new year brings you wonderful things.
