Sparrow Painting – Mike

Sparrow Painting

Hi Matt,

This is a little 4×6″ study of a sparrow in watercolour/gouache.

I accidentally photographed this under a mix of warm and cool light sources – giving the image a blue cast on the right-hand side. To be honest, I prefer this to my original! I need to experiment with colour a bit more.

I’m dabbling with paint because I’m feeling a bit uninspired at the moment. I’d like to try both different media and different subjects, but I’m not really sure what direction I want to take.

Anyways, aside from the colour, I was happy with the values and edges on this one.

Thanks for taking a look!
