Watercolor Painting - Birds

I am sketching and painting birds that are part of my husband's book of bird poems and stories.  I do love the challenge of illustrating these wonderful creatures. 

Here's a few for a look see.  Enjoy!

When my sketchbook is full I plan to give it to my dear husband who is patiently waiting!

The Virtual Paintout - Plein Aire (sort of) Virtually

I discovered The Virtual Paintout Group Blog recently via Cathy Johnson, a wonderful artist and instructor (http://artistsjournalworkshop.blogspot.com/).    During the month of May the group traveled - virtually - to Chile!  What fun!  I'm not an international traveler and my travel in the states has been quite limited, so this whole idea is huge fun for me!  check it out at: http://virtualpaintout.blogspot.com/     My painting was done in a small moleskin watercolor journal.  I am looking forward to June's travels and doing more now that I have my feet wet!  best to you all for wonderful creative time!  deborah
