Watercolour Wednesday {Birds} and Pink and Grey Interiors

Today in my art class at Art Est, we painted birds. Of course I had to try a chicken as we have four in our backyard (Bucket, Cloud, Layla and Dr Eggbert) and we love them; and their fresh eggs.

Not the best as I should have used more raw sienna to lighten the chickens feathers. 


Then a little quick study of some small birds. 
I've no idea what these birds are called
Finch? Sparrow?


I then tried a galah. I'm reasonably happy with this. 
First I used watercolour paper.

and then again but slightly different. The legs in a different position and I used watercolour paint on canvas which gives a completely different look. I still need to darken up the branch to balance the tones out.


I didn't think I would enjoy the subject today but it was quite lovely. Especially the pinky greys of the galah.  

I'm not really a pink girl myself but I do like pink when it's balanced out with grey. It's very popular in interior design also.

Not that I have any pink in my house. What do you think? Do you decorate with pink? What does your husband say?


Have a lovely day
