Project Details - Project Discussion - My entries

This was my third project. The challenge this time was to use only primary colors. I used Winsor & Newton; Winsor Lemon, Winsor Blue (Red Shade) and Permanent Rose. All the other colors I mixed.

I chose to make this a real challenge and painted wild birds that you may find in Sweden. I have always been fascinated with birds. When I was a child I memorised a book about the different species of birds in Sweden.

These were painted on Langton watercolor paper, each painting being of ATC size (2,5 x 3,5 inch) size. I used a size 6 and a size 0000 brush, some of these birds have some really tiny details. :-)
