Blue Jay's World

BLUE JAY'S WORLD, Watercolor, 11x14"
Here's a watercolor I recently finished of a blue jay looking out over a field.  A few of the techniques used in this painting are flat and variegated washes, spattering, layering, and negative painting.  Much of the beauty of watercolor is in the unpredictability of exact outcomes.  This unpredictability is also the greatest challenge to creating a successful watercolor painting. It helps to learn and practice, practice, practice some fun techniques. I teach watercolor classes at my Home Studio and at Pasco Hernando State College
