My recent posts are of larger watercolors. Their size is a little too big for the photo cube I use, so the lighting is not the best. Please know that the background is the white of the paper while I figure out my technical issues. I am working to have the birds integrated into the background or abstracting their form. Luckily I have many willing models, as long as I feed them. This guy got his new spring duds earlier than the other guys he was traveling with. I wonder if that gave him an advantage in finding a mate.
The iris I post today was tucked down and I almost missed it. It didn't develop the usual long iris stem but it is stunning even as a truncated fellow,
