Bird. NeocolorII on watercolour paper
After having done quite a lot of abstract paintings I wanted to try something more real – a little bird, sitting on a branch. It is not realistic, though, but it can be identified as a bird, I think. Of course there is not bird in such colours – so it is kind of a fantasy bird.
I am still excited about the ways you can use those watersoluble wax crayons – in this painting I didn’t make any marks with the crayons and only applied the paint with a brush.
The background was done with a stabilo 68 pen. Some might wrinkle their noses because of the streaks; however, they didn’t happen – I very intentionally created them when I coloured with the stabilo 68 pen.
