©Pottery Bird with Bow, Watercolour Study, Dec. 2013 Step 1
By Laura Leeder
I have just completed a commissioned painting with loads of detail (which I will post here after Christmas) and was in need for a fun and interesting study before starting my next painting; a floral that includes this bow.
I purchased this pottery bird last January while shopping in Sandpoint, Idaho and have been wanting to include it in a painting for some time. So, I decided to pair it with this green bow for a playful study. For me, this is a perfect opportunity to explore textures, patterns and shapes plus the interaction of both warm and cool colors. Here's to some PLAY time!
Have a great day, thanks for stopping by,
