Girl feeding birds, study


I'm planning a painting of a young girl feeding pigeons. This is a quick study of the girl. I don't have a lot of time to do much art at the moment as I'm buried under a big pile of exams that I've got to mark! I know what I'd rather be doing, but I should be finished with the marking this weekend. I've still got that portrait to finish too!

That's beautiful. Love the colors and composition. Looking forward to the final painting.

Yeah, exam time...good luck! You're going to have a tough time doing the marking instead of working on this painting, which looks very inviting. It looks great so far and I'm also looking forward to the end result...now how's that for pressure!

This is a lovely beginning, Dave. I love your approach to watercolor, so soft and loose. Thanks to for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit my blog - I really appreciate it. Now, back to work!

I love the loose thumbnail in watercolour Dave.

I feel your pain in exam marking - th end is in sight! :)

I was looking at the other one - which is just lovely by the way - and I had to scroll down to see this one too. I'm so glad I did. I love the colors, and the looseness of the shapes. It's just beautiful Dave.
