Springtime Bluebird

Another watercolour painting from me tonight... my throat is feeling a little sore tonight and I didn't want to further irritate it with the oil paint fumes. Hopefully I feel better tomorrow and I'll have another update of 'Buddy'.

I was having a terrible time with the scanner and the oranges on the poppy and bluebird. If I got the oranges to look right... the greens looked terrible.... sigh. Here's the best I could do tonight. It is much more colourful in life with lots of subtle tones in the bird and background.

Madelaine, I hope your throat feels better, lots of that going around. I had it over the weekend, my son and husband and daughter last week, so it could be allergies too. Be well. I love this birdie and love the background. The scan looks fine. No worries. Just get WELL! :) Hugs, Rose
