Kelly - Painting 10

12x16 Arches Cold Pressed 140 lb Paper

I found this sweet little Sedge Wren hiding in the tall grasses of a local park in August of 2009. I was able to get a few photos of him, but they were poor (they worked just fine as a photo reference, though), so I decided to bring him to life with watercolor. During this summer and early fall, I watched for him every time I was in the meadow, but he never returned. He's a bit of a rarity in our area, so who knows if I'll ever see him there again.

Kelly, I love the soft colors and you really did a nice job with the feathery texture!

This little guy is absolutely adorable. I really get the sense of his feathers in the coloring and texture. The shading on the branch is very convincing and his eye is perfect! I get the sense that he is looking right at me out of the corner of his eye.

Thanks, Sheryl and Claire!
