Oh, What a Beautiful Morning (aren’t you glad this isn’t audio)

A perfect morning would be… awaken at a decent hour perhaps sometime between 7 and 7:30, wash up, grab a cup of coffee, a watercolour palette, pen, brushes, paper and a large tub of water.  Sit out on the patio beneath a sky of cerulean blue and accompanied by the singing of birds, paint.  Bliss.  And lucky me, this was my morning.

Here is the result.  I sketched the birds in ink then watercoloured them.  They are painted on 4.5″ x 6.75″ rives paper. Bird-1-watercolourBird-2-watercolourBird-3-watercolour

I hope you enjoyed your morning as much as I did mine.
