Three little watercolour feathers
Three Little Feathers   15x21cm approx each   watercolour on paper   ©2016Lisa Le Quelenec

More subtle and wintry greys - this time for feathers. My palette does seem to be greyed down at the moment again and I am enjoying it immensely. I love neutrals and especially colourful ones. This are mixes of Payne's grey, neutral tint, cobalt blue, yellow ochre and indigo. There is so much variation that can be achieved. These colours have been all in the skies of late but yesterday was glorious blue - cold and very windy - a good day for collecting treasures.

All three are available individually in my Etsy gallery Seasidestudiosuk

Hi there Lisa!... "Variation" exercises do so much to broaden mastery of nuances of color. Within those subtle nuances lie the very differences... between what is "ordinary"... and what is exemplary.

Your three feathers demonstrate what is exemplary in water color! Bravo!

Good Painting... and MUCH Joy!
Warmest regards,

So beautiful! I love those neutrals!

It is not easy to be so delicate with neutrals but you've done it - lovely feathers with great colors = elegant additions to someone's wall, I'm sure.

Wow Bruce! Thank you so much.

Hi Judy, thank you. I spotted you on Etsy - your shop is looking great.

Hi Rhonda, I hope so ;o) thank you. I love painting them so much - as much as collecting them!
