Painting #14 Tree Branch In The Sky



This is one more sky that I did and discovered that it fits well for "Illustration Friday's" theme word of 'focused'.  I have indeed been focused on skies this last week using wet-in-wet watercolors.

I didn't know what I was going to add to the painting after I did it until today when I saw the IF word and realized how focused I have been on painting skies. I just added the tree branch against this Arizona sky and when I was almost finished I thought a nest in the tree would look interesting so I added that also.

Now I feel I can move on to a landscape with an interesting sky.

I forgot to say that I used a 'rigger' brush probably for the first time in my life and it works just great for those small branches.

What a gorgeous sky, Teri---love all the warm colors! The branch with the nest is beautiful. I have a rigger brush, too, but I don't think I've ever used it. I'm going to pull that baby out!

Teri, I am loving the bright colors you're using. The nest is a great touch. And the rigger definitely made some great tree branches.

Good use on the rigger, Teri, and lovely sky!

Thanks everyone. Seems the more paintings I do, the more I want to do.
