    journal beginning Red headjournal redhead wood          I started using a light wash of pink that I thought I would overpaint with swashes of darker color to get highlights on head.  Same as back of bird only I used a teal.  I kept darkening the teal as the light wash didn't work.  I couldn't manage to get the effect I wanted so I started using thin brushstrokes (feathers) in dark red and black.  It seemed to work but it was not what I wanted.  I also went back over the head with white thin strokes for highlights.  Again, not what I had hoped to do.

    IMG_2174(1)Yes this was pretty interesting.  But tedious.  I wasn't sure I had the attention span but I kept going and completed the pix.  As true as I tried to be with the interior lines, they are still wonky but look ok anyway.

    IMG_2157(1)  My leaves were not similar but I found the differences interesting.  I enjoyed just really taking tie to look at objects.

    IMG_2144I noticed leaf shadow and veining and where bugs had eaten lea leaf. I noticed flatness and roundness of the bird but did'nt capture it quite enough.  I draw and paint a lot from photos and try to notice all details.  I enjoy this game.  How can we do that in nature?  light shifts, things move away, plus...I'm too far away to see any details.  Am I getting ahead of us?
