Just a few caveats. I did not paint the chicken in the same lighting as this picture. I am my own worst critic and I know that many things are way off in the sketch. However, I am proud of myself in that I used the dreaded watercolors to paint the chick and stuck with it. I did use one of my free Conte pastel pencils (they are great) in a blue to add to the shadows and a drop of white fluid acrylic to lighten up the highlights. Actually looking at the opening on top of the creamer (that's what it is) I can see how "off" it is. But mainly, I am pleased that I tackled something that involved paint (it's been about 3 weeks since I have felt inspired to do so) and I worked with watercolor. I've missed a couple of weeks of Paint Party Friday - so I'm linking to it here. Go and check out all the fabulous artists who participate. And much thanks to Eva and Kristin for continuing to host PPF. Thanks for stopping by - feel free to leave a comment!! LOVE to hear from you.
