Kelly - Paintings 75 & 76

Painting 76
9x12 Arches Rough 140 Lb Paper, Watercolor
I drew this white-breasted Nuthatch in the car as I waited for Matty at school. I finished up the drawing and added the watercolor at his tennis clinic. I used to read while I waited, but now that I'm not afraid to paint and draw in public, I'm using the time to meet the 100 painting challenge. (My booklist, however, has come to a screeching halt!)

Painting 75
7x10 Arches Cold Pressed 140 Lb Paper, Watercolor
I drew and painted this Golden-crowned Kinglet in the car as I waited for Matty. It only took 15 minutes. I wanted to see if I could capture a fair representation quickly. I'd like to redo this one and spend more time on it. I saw both of these birds on the Little Miami Trail...and drew them from ref photos I took then.

Nice birds! Don't you love how nuthatches spend their lives upside down.

Nice work and a good way to spend your waiting time in the car!

Nice work in 15 minutes and a great use of your time overall. Don't you wish there were more hours in the day?

Thanks, everyone!
