As I mentioned before, I found aqua brush pen is quite difficult to handle or may be I am not used to it and it’s just my excuse. I haven’t opened my art box yet. Still using travel kit. Also repurposing the old papers, using back of the paper.
I have this tiny birds in progress for today. It’s my quarantined painting so I am using my travel kit these days. That being said it’s hard for me to achieve desired results with brush pen. Or may be it’s just my excuse that I am not using my regular art supplies 😉
so another update is our hotel quarantine is over today, and next 7 days we will be home quarantined. It feels so good when you come home after such a hectic journey and staying in hotel for a week with all your luggage. When we reached home, my mother in law cooked a delicious lunch / thali to welcome us. That was a bliss having homemade food after a while.
As I mentioned before, I am almost 10-15 days behind in this 100 days project, and it’s July the world watercolor month going on, I think I could participate in #worldwatercolormonth as well at the same time right!
Yay it’s done!
I am kind of enjoying this bird with florals series.
Today we went to Mike’s (my husband’s colleague) place. He invited us over BBQ. He kept the coals on the grill ready in his backyard. It was our first American BBQ experience. We loved outdoor bbq and he was the master of grill.
When he visited our apartment couple of weeks ago, he saw the paintings on wall. He was so much interested in my bird paintings, and asked if he can keep those frames as we might be moving back to India soon. so I gifted him all of the three paintings and he loved it.
I was so happy that my artworks were going to new home, not one or two but three at a time.
Made more progress with little guy. Added flowers.
These days I am not just painting a single bird but over time I realized if I add some background or surrounding to it the it will make more sense than just a bird on a branch.
Here is this little birdie for today. Made this much progress on this little guy. This time using St. Petersburg White Nights colors on 140lb cold press Fluid paper. Attached are work in progress photos.
