Kelly - Paintings 50 and 51

(Watercolor, 9x12)

(Watercolor 7x9)

Northern Parulas are one of my favorite spring warblers. I found this guy singing along a local river. The field sketches I did quickly without regard for accuracy or detail...I just wanted to capture the "feel" of the bird. I used a limited palette and a water brush with no pencil sketches.

Lovely watercolors and delightful postures. I love the singing ones! You are a very patient woman to capture the life of a subject that is rarely still!

...thanks, Lorrie....it didn't take too much patience...just a fast paintbrush and not worrying about accuracy! I did these very quickly, but spent a lot of time study him through the binocs!! :-) The studio painting I took my time.

He he, you get extra credit for having patience to do binocular studies!
