It looks like this is the Summer of watercolor for me! It’s really surprising since I always had a little prejudice against watercolor, imagining ruffly doilies and pink roses and other old lady things (much appologies to ladies who do like those things, its just not my cuppa tea). It turns out there is a lot of interesting layers, textures and fun to be had with negative space! My latest experimentation has been with birds.

Here is a little gallery of a chickadee coming together:
