Bird Days, Birds 7 & 8


So James told you about how he got a little behind. Well, I did too. But, s'tch-k! Today I had a chance to catch up. I added a sweet little Coal Tit and a Red-headed Woodpecker. I tried something a little different with the Coal Tit. I did a varied wash on my surface which I moved around with turpentine to get the basic darks and lights. I built the bird from there. It's mostly grays and blacks. The wash is yellows. It looks watery. I like. Much.

I love you,
Lily

P.S. Leave me a comment so I know you love me back!

  1. I really like the wash too. I think we should start doing that for alot more of the remaining birds. Plus, I like painting Tits.
