Winter Waiting - Original Watercolor

Taking a break from chickadee's with a cedar waxwing.  I love the bright warm colours on these guys, especially against the cool blue sky.

Golden Glow

I'm having a hard time capturing the colours correctly in this painting for some reason.  Its a little too red, the sky should be a tad more blue.  I'll have to try taking a photo tomorrow in natural light and skip the scanner.

Best Friends - Chickadee Painting

Another chickadee.... having fun with these guys.  I love watching them on my bird feeder in my backyard just about as much as I love painting them!

Holiday Chickadee - Chickadee Painting

I thought I would get a little head start on the Christmas themed painting this year.  Last year I didn't finish my holiday card painting until the middle on November which meant I was completely rushed trying to get my cards out. Not this year. Yah!  Now, I can do my cards in a completely non rushed fashion with a nice hot cup of coffee.

Fall Colours - Chickadee Watercolour 4 x 6 Painting

Another chickadee painting...  Having fun painting these guys.  It's been a while since I have painted much and these guys are always fun to get back into the mode of painting. I like to think of them as my muse.

Morning Dew - Chickadee Painting

I started this one quite some time ago....  So long ago, I actually can't remember when I started it.  Well, tonight, this little guy is finished, and varnished.  I also added a touch of glass bead medium to the leaves and flower buds...  Kinda like the dew first thing in the morning.

Apple Splash III - Finished

I think I am finished.  I put the final details in last night and put my initials on this morning.  Overall, I am really happy with the way this turned out and with how long it took me..... less than a month!  Now, just need to let it dry and then varnish.
