These were two paintings I did in our Birds of a Feather Class. Look closely at the tips of the feathers to the right where we wrote a poem with tiny words using a magnifying glass. I really enjoyed Gina's class. She was a Great Teacher and constantly helped us with our paintings. I loved the concept of layering the lighter and then darker colors. We used wet in wet for some of the mottled areas.
Gina gave us a lesson about types of paints, brushes and papers. The first step was to draw the shapes with our micron .001 pen.
|This was the second step to add the lightest colors. We used a magnifying glass to see the blues and pinks in the beige colors.|
