Barn Swallows #36 and #37
I'm posting these two swallow paintings together because of their connection. I drew/painted the first from a photo I had just taken. I wasn't lucky enough to capture both the swallow and the feather, only the swallow; but I did see it chasing the feather. ... Micron pen and watercolor.
Afterwards I thought to myself... how about trying something more daring. Draw from my head, not my photo. So I did the second. I think the second may have a little more action, but the anatomy isn't quite right.
I do think it is good to jump out of our comfort zone once in awhile. I know I should give it a try more often.
