Bluebird on Frozen Watercolor and Happy New Year!
Here is a new little bluebird I painted yesterday. I was tickled with the background. The blues on the edge of the wash formed into the ice crystals. Here's how== Clear water on your watercolor paper, then drop the color onto the wash, then place it outside to ice up, and here I did it at the edges. I'm going to experiment with this edging ice today as the temperature is supposed to drop into the teens,perfect for placing your watercolor washes outside to freeze. We do have some strong winds so it may be a challenge. ha ha.. If you try it let me know how it goes!! We've had some snow,just a touch. Here on the Shore we don't get huge amounts so it's always exciting to see Snow!
I hope each of you is staying toasty warm, painting, and enjoying your New Year!! love to you,Diana
Yes, Sadie,my dear puppy, loved the snow, but not the wind so much. We lost 2 lob lolly pines on the edge of the yard last night.
