12x18 watercolor on gessoed Crescent white matboard, drawn yesterday with Magic multicolored pencils then painted today. First the birds were painted as the most realistic shapes, then a loose abstract background with same hues. Allowing for surprises in this high key work, I searched for suggestions that could be leaves or flowers. Bird colors are not real. Tree branches and twigs however, are all positive lines. It was a bright sunny day here and birds were singing, saying that Spring is just around the corner!
