Kelly - Painting 91
Arches Cold Pressed 140 Lb Paper
This little Red-breasted Nuthatch is in the mood for the holidays! It's the first time I ever created a holiday "collage." I drew everything out in pencil first, since it was brewed up in my head. The detailed pencil drawing really helped. I then transferred it over to watercolor paper. This is the first detailed work I've done in a long time. I was sick, so I had to take it easy. It's the perfect combination. I'd never painted a pinecone before. Whoa...like putting a puzzle together!
I liked doing the detailed pencil drawing, because when I finished, the idea to switch up the ribbon popped in my head. If I hadn't planned it out before hand, I wouldn't have been able to change the painting.
cuter placement of ribbon...made it to the painting
