Day 17: 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
"Sing like a Cardinal" $99 SOLD
11" x 14" image Watercolor, charcoal, and collage
I had started this painting last week in prep for the Cape Coral workshop. So I decided to finish it up for one of my 30 paintings this month. Cardinals are such a fun bird to watch, especially in MN when I spot them in the trees in the Spring. It's like our first bit of color all winter, and of course, it's my favorite color, red! This painting, started with a charcoal pour, explained in earlier blogs this month. The preparation process is in the book by Virginia Cobb, Discovering the Inner Eye, Experiments in Water Media. Then I added collage for the wings and in the background. I love collage! This painting is available for purchase at the special January price of $99 plus shipping.
