Willow Gold Finch Painting

Hello Friends,

A few weeks ago I drew a Willow Gold Finch and started a couple of paintings with it. I just realized that I never posted the completed paintings. Here they are (I kept one and gave one to our new neighbour), along with the process paintings and the original drawing.
The green is painter's tape, which is holding the watercolour paper onto a piece of cardboard to prevent it from curling when wet.
Here are the paintings with the tape removed. The tape leaves a nice even border.

These are actually hybrid paintings because I printed out digital images of my originally hand-drawn bird onto water colour paper and did my painting from that. I kept one and gave one to our new neighbours. In case you missed out on getting the digital image, here it is again.

Art Journal Post

Hello Friends,

I am thrilled to let you know that Angela Hoynes (Crafting with Jack) has agreed to join me in my daily painting/art journaling challenge for the month of July. We will be linking our blog posts whenever we do something for the challenge.

Some of my posts will be here and some will be on my Tickell Expressions: A Closer Walk blog, but I will put a link on each blog so you know where to look. Of course, you could always e-mail subscribe to both so you don't miss a post. :)

Today's Art Journal page is on my A Closer Walk blog. The tab is at the top of this page or you can click here to go directly to the post.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs & smiles,
Teresa
