A beautiful picture! I think Deb has a good idea about the eye. I also think the beak is a little off but not sure.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful art!

Thank you, everyone, for the compliments and suggestions for the painting! I've made some tweaks to the first painting of Dee and I'm liking it better already. Going to make some final adjustments tonight and I'll post the revised painting then (or maybe tomorrow if I run out of good lighting to take the picture).

Made some really good progress on my second piece. I'm really, really loving it. I tend to gravitate toward the "splashy" look of watercolor since it's one of the few mediums that allows it to have a mind of its own that can't be replicated otherwise. Going to add some more splashes before working on Charlie, but thought I'd post a progress shot.

When I upload all of these paintings for the scholarship, they'll be nice digital copies. For now (and for progress shots) I'm just using my phone since it's quicker and enables me to update easily. But I have a feeling I should repost all the paintings' digital copies when all is done.

Okay, Painting #1 (heh talking like I'm naming my hatching chicks).


Painting #2:


I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to work on next but feel like I should stay in the vein of budgie-themed until I have enough done to put together a portfolio. Then I can move on to the horses (which I have a lot of ideas for!) Considering an abstract egg-type...would like to show the idea of candling and the veins inside, but not quite sure how I would do that yet. I've thought about the whole other route of painting an actual feather, but that may be a bit too far "out there." Regardless, I'd like to submit multiple mediums, so a graphite or acrylic might be coming your way. Could still work real feathers into it somehow...just thinking out loud here. Hopefully going to at least get a sketch done tonight! Still trying to hit my 3 paintings a week quota.

The first two are great and I'll be looking forward to seeing what you decide to do for #3!

That's beautiful! I love the close-ups where you can see how much detail you put into these

I can't wait to see more!

Next piece is going to be focused on texture. And, since I have access to specifically birdie things, going to use everything I've got! The pictures turned funny but I don't have time to rotate before I go to church, so going to leave it, especially because it doesn't affect the look of the texture

Sketch and onto watercolor paper (I'm thinking this may be the last watercolor then switch to graphite...we shall see)


And a page of playing around with texture. Painted feathers, put masking fluid onto feathers, added seeds to the watercolor, painted some wood, and rolled a dowel perch in paint (finally found a use for them- ha!) Obviously won't be allowing the birds access to these things again.

Thanks! Lucky for you, I'll be updating a lot in the coming weeks.

Progress from tonight. Heavy on texture and color and lots going on so far. I think I like it, but I may have to tone it down if it distracts from the bird too much. Actually worked really well to use feathers I've collected. I haven't removed any masking fluid yet, but you can kind of see where it's at.

Progress from Painting #3! It's on the cusp of being finished, but not quite ready to call it done yet. It's taking a while to wait for each layer to dry, so I've started #4 in the meantime. I just need to give the yellow a more vibrant color...putting a lighter color over dark in watercolor just means that to get that effect, you need to put in a whole lot of layers

And Piece #4 is going to be a graphite. Inspired by the humorous pictures from last year's clutch, I'm calling it "Growing Pains." It features poor, patient Izzy getting trampled by her chicks.
