In an earlier post, I wrote about mono-printing using acrylic paints. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but I cut them down into Artist Trading Cards recently, and I like them a lot better.
I've been practising my watercolour technique thanks to a book by Claudia Nice - Painting Nature in Pen & Ink with Watercolour. I'm not drawing like Claudia does so well, I'm using rubber stamps. I have enhanced them after colouring with ink.
Actually, I think these birds are supposed to be robins, but they look like the plump little chickadees we have in our back yard, so I coloured them like chickadees. The chickadees in our yard love everything else (well, they sing a lot), so why not Christmas?
