Listening to the music of Adele and the rain: This little watercolour was a joy to paint this dark wintry afternoon ❤ More paintings
I had the idea for this painting some time ago. It was only when I created a warm pink backdrop that I felt it worked. The yellow lamp light adds a nice point of interest.
The freedom of a little bird over a large icy city. So much freedom in fact, that the bird is on her way off the canvas. This piece is a study of space, cooler colours and the emotion of the little bird. The backlit silhouetted tree creates balance to the painting. The pale yellow sunrise announces the hope of a new day.
A blessed weekend to all – remember to enjoy the present moment!
Sometimes when I get an idea my paintbrush won’t move fast enough across the paper! Here’s a quick painted sketch I did using orange and black watercolour. I love the dramatic effect of the striking black against the bright orange.
