Today, I focused on incorporating other elements into my paintings in addition to my florals. So I tried my hand at painting some simple birds. This one is a really big, plump bird and pretty much covers the entire card. I think I will downsize it just a tad on my next design. Blues and yellows and a touch of orange are colors I love to contrast on most birds. Love using a mix of orange and reds as well.
On this one below, I dabbled with two birds and painted florals surrounding them.
I normally don't hone in on black too much as I prefer more delicate colors - so it was a fun challenge to work with richer, deeper colors.
