      Over all I'm pretty happy with this with this first try. I do think the edges of black on the wings and tail feathers could have softer edges and the body outline could be better. I see that practice is still needed! 20191111_183819

      This is my first water color effort. The loon was pictured in a calendar. The class has been a joy especially in the chilly Minnesota fall. I have a lot of questions about going forward, but look forward to discovering the answers. IMG_5312 2

      Practice painting from a photo: maintaining fine white lines on the edges of the tail feathers was a challenge. Maybe with lots of practice this will become easier :)IMG_0019

        Hello  Sandy, it is very beautiful,  I really love the wings and the texture around the eye. I can see you used wet on diy technique, that is my favourite too.

      It was a bit complicated to have all my materials in the field. The best is to get the water tank brushes! I took a folding chair with me, it also helped. Constructing a complete journal has been a challenge for me, because I never remember to take complete notes, If I draw and colour, I forget to take notes. If I take notes and draw, i do not have the time to add colours.  I imagine that skills come with time and lots of practice. Before I share my journal, I will try to make my journal page more accurate and including the subjects learned in the course.

      This was based on a reference photo, and inspired by my first guided bird walk, hosted by the local Audubon Society.   The kingfisher who was perched over a pond, took my breath away.  I feel that the colors were OK, but I have a lot to learn about how to capture the pose and demeanor of the bird. %RAEk3MWTFKNShOlC8yJGw

        Beautiful! Kingfishers are marvelous birds, have such agility and alertness and you captured him beautifully! I love the spark in his eye!
