Kelly - Paintings 52 and 53
I did two paintings of the same bird, a Louisiana Waterthrush, in two styles. The oil pastel I painted first (right after I got home). The watercolor/colored pencil painting, I did today, a few days later.
As you can tell, the oil pastel is not at realistic as the watercolor. Whenever I do oil pastels, I seem to produce more representational work. When I saw this bird, it was the first day of sunshine in weeks. The red and orange came out when I started to paint because my mind was filled with heat and sun.
(Watercolor with colored pencil scribbled in here and there...)
I don't know why I added in the colored pencil. i just felt like scribbling. I like the scribbly look of pencil over watercolor sometimes. Can you tell the rains have returned? No more reds and oranges!
