Kelly - Painting 25

Painting 25, "Orange Jungle Bird Building Nest," is another departure from realism. Before I get back to a few more detailed watercolors, I wanted to play in rich pigment, creating lots of swirly energy as the frantic spring nest building season starts to shape up. I feel like this little bird is deep in the shadows of the rain forest's canopy where life, birdsong and moisture fill the air...

Totally different style for you. What fun to play with the intense pigments. I really like what you have come up with.
