Kelly - Painting 57

Painting 57
(Watercolor heightened with colored pencil)

I saw this Prairie Warbler in Florida back in March. He was a songster king, tossing his head in the air and singing nonstop!

(Watercolor underpainting completely covered with a heavy coat of oil pastel)

This is a rework of painting 54. The original watercolor just didn't have enough life in it, so I gave in and smeared color all over it!

I love the way you used temperature in the oil pastels to pop the branch and bird. The soft background works well in the watercolor. I am eying our cockatiel as rainy day subject material.

57 is stunning. I love your use of mixed media. 54 is a delight ans so rich with color. Your talents never ends :)
Keep on!

Great job at capturing the gesture in the body on the top image and the brightness on the bottom guy!
