Winter Cardinal Love WaterColour

Wowza, have I been having fun???????

It all started years ago, not so sure how many years now.  I started following “Chronicles of a Country Girl”  blog.   I’m pretty sure I was drawn by this very photograph she took of a female cardinal….

I have loved this image for as long as I can remember.  I grew up in Missouri and AdORe Cardinals, especially the females.

So we traded a photograph of hers for the lOVE Tree painting of mine.  Super excited and happy for this.  So I asked Kate ?? May I pretty please paint her image and she said

all the wonderful misket  (which is the yellow shiny stuff) painted on the sketch to keep the whites pure…

And then I took the magical mistik off and did this:

Plus I’ve been working on another ‘Old Blue Chevy in the Field’ watercolor.

    Beautiful female cardinal painting – so lucky she said yes to using her photo (I’ve found photographers are so generous with their work – they just ask to see the final painting and get credit for the photo). Old trucks are always fun to see, too – with a bit of rust making them more interesting 🙂

    I love seeing the progression of the painting, and it looks great. You are so talented!

    A wonderful painting! The peacock is nice – this is fabulous. I’ll bet it sells very quickly. I hope so!
