Hello again! I've managed to get the paints out and find the time for something more substantial than sketching. So, here we have a painting of a family of Great Crested Grebes that I photographed on the river a couple of years back.
This is acrylic, 8 by 12", and was painted based on a line and wash sketch (5 by 7"):
Which in turn followed on from a quick thumbnail sketch:
Nice subjects to paint for sure - they are beautiful birds. And I had fun with the water too...
...and welcome to Sharon's Pics! Painting, drawing and printmaking inspired by the natural world is my thing - I love the challenge and it's great to see the subjects coming to life on the paper or canvas. I never get bored of it.
I also have another blog, Cambridgeshire nature notes, where you'll find drawings, sketches, studies, photos and general rambling on about the natural world as I find it...
