Painting: Watercolor on Paper.
I’ve enjoyed painting the birds that I see where I live. One bird that is pretty elusive and I’ve only seen a couple of times is the Baltimore Oriole. When I see a bird that is rarely seen it adds to the mystery of the encounter. Because I rarely see it, maybe I exaggerate the birds movements and intelligence in my mind . . sleek, discerning. I have painted a Baltimore Oriole a few times and this painting is different from the others because I decided to add a background which makes it a darker (in value) painting than the others and allows for more harmony since I included similar colors that comprise the bird.
