4th watercolour – American Kestrel WaterColour by CheyAnne Sexton

for the January 30in30 Challenge

This painting is inspired by one of my first photos with our new Canon Rebel xti Kiss, this American Kestrel sitting on the fence-line right outside our front door:


We lived in a little apartment when we were first together and we bought a nice DSLR with combined funds and I feel in love with photography alllllll over again.  But painting with watercolours have always been in mind when I push that shutter button?  Will this make a great painting? ‘ ‘ click ‘ ‘

colors used:

Sepia, Burnt sienna, Paynes Grey, Chrome Orange,  Madder Lake, Phthacyaine Blue and Antwerp blue


Do any of my readers like seeing the image this came from?

    I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a kestrel — at least, and known what it was. It’s a beautiful bird, and you’ve captured him so well. Do you feel like you’re improving in your art? I think you are — your birds seem livelier. Well done!

    They are amazing birds to watch in the air and up close, I feel very privileged to have been this close. I’m not quite sure if my paintings are improving, but more than that, it’s the discipline more than anything right now, I truly hope that by the end of the 30th watercolor I might be able to look back and say yes Linda. Thank you for the visit
