Birds and Animals

Last Sunday's class was depicting fur or feathers when painting birds and animals in watercolour.  Tricky stuff.  Especially if the creature is white!  I tried painting a squirrel (or chipmunk) and a cardinal.  I have always loved cardinals and my years spent out East where they don't live has made me a little more obsessed.  I will not post him because he is awful.  Husband said it looked like he had a trucker beard!
Here is the squirrel and a couple of other birds I have been practicing at home.

The halo of white light around him should be varied. 

Chickadee - quick study

I didn't tape down this study and so it is warped, causing the shadow on
the right hand side.  Oh well!
