American Robin Babies!


"American Robin" is almost finished!
The babies are thrilled to finally have their feathers~


Little by little... layer by layer...
In watercolor I paint light to dark, building & shaping.
A few finishing touches & then we're off to the printer!

Hope your Friday is off to a great start!

I absolutely cannot wait to see this completed. I love birds and this looks to be stunning. I also received my wisteria painting and am so delighted with my gift to myself for my birthday. I am totally in love with it and it looks so darling in my sewing/craft/office and will keep spring alive year round. Thanks so much for sharing your art!

P.S. I wrote a short post about my little wren sketch, when you have a spare moment why not take a look!?

Your downy little robin chicks are wonderful. I love how you show the process of building up the colors as you go - it's so fascinating to see it come to life!

What a lovely painting! We've had so much rain here that none of the baby Blue Tits have turned up this year to peck at the grains we leave out on the window ledge, so your work is extra special...
