|"Snowy Cardinal - Original Watercolour Painting|
Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. This morning marked the end of my night shifts for the weekend, so I had a good sleep in and am now cozied up with a coffee. Tomorrow I'm back at the hospital again, but until then I will enjoy the rest of this blissful Sunday. :o)
Snowy Cardinal". I had started this painting back in the winter, when we had cardinals visiting our bird feeder. I set it aside to ponder what I wanted to complete on it next, and finally put the finishing touches on it. I'm so happy to be able to share it now with all of you, it's been a long time coming.
I especially enjoyed painting with the red - it's such a strong and vibrant colour that I don't typically use as a focal colour, due to it's strong nature. But with a cardinal, there is no other choice - and it was just so lovely to lay down that rich and bright colour.
