for the January 30in30 Challenge
goldFinch Flushed … out on paper by CheyAnne Sexton
This is from a photo I took this summer/fall, pre-autumn, late summer here in northern New Mexico. A stunning time for light and colors. Deep golds that blossom into brilliant yellows in the southwestern sun of this part of the Earth. I was fascinated with the little gold finches that fly through eating the seed on the way south for the winter. They stay just long enough to recognize their little body shapes and flashes of color, the way they flit through the lower bushes and Piñon trees. Many more flashes of bright yellow/orange into the tree-line. Siskin’s stay longer and aren’t as skittish or as flashy.
colors used: phthocyanine blue, Winsor Violet, Sap Green, Hookers green, Quinacridone gold Deep, Nickel Quinacridone by M. Graham
I’m wanting to use this as a study for a larger really layer painting. I bought 2 nice pieces of 300 lb watercolour paper at my local art store, and I’ve been looking for a super saturated, many layered watercolor.
It’s been in my head for a long time, I’m just not quite sure which one yet
Thank you so much looking in, and if you would like to add a comment I would love to hear from you.
