After almost two months of sitting on my easel I finally finished the Kingfisher this past weekend.
|The sketch and the base|
|Filling it in|
|Look there is a bird|
|And the bird has an eye|
|The sign is made of wood|
|The bird has some shadow and some highlight on the wood|
|NO FISHING was added|
|More highlights on the wood|
|Weathering the wooden sign|
|More weathering and a fish|
|DONE (can’t you tell by the smile on my face!)|
As per usual I painted this with my PLAID Paints (I love them so much). I really need to start writing down the colors I use there were so many in this one I don’t think I could remember them all. I didn’t even use Paynes Grey in this one (shocking I know) I discovered Burnt Umber, a little Cobalt and some Black makes a really nice Paynes grey.
This is the scan I did of the painting I have not taken “outside photos” yet – I plan on doing that today.
