Blue Jay Study

Bluejay Study/ watercolor/ 5" x 9"/ SOLD

I am currently working daily on large watercolors in hopes of a submission to a large national juried show. Sometimes, I make an irretrievable mistake. Most recently, it was having a little too much cerulean blue in a shadow color which made the skin tone too "grainy".  Because technical excellence is one criteria for acceptance, I must restart a painting and on those days, my daily small paintings are not completed.  Today, however, this little guy just wanted to be painted and the big paintings just had to wait!
