bird of paradise study i || 8x8-inch original painting
The tropical bird of paradise plant has long been a favorite of mine. (Can all of the flowers be my favorite?) I tackled this distinctive flower a few years ago for the calendar but felt like trying again during this series.
Things I learned with this painting:
- slow. Your. Roll.
- watercolors can look very different once they dry.
- colored pencils are still fun.
- it’s ok to try something new.
- foliage is always the answer.
8x8-inch watercolor, colored pencil, graphite, and gouache on paper. Sealed to prevent fading and smudging.
