Chickadee Valentine

6.25x6.5 watercolor on 140 lb cold press Daler Rowney Langton Prestige paper, done late yesterday just in time for Valentine's Day tomorrow.  Beginning with a loose limited palette background I spritzed water then pale yellow arylide, adding touches of blue and alizarin crimson.  Colored pencils were sanded into wet areas.  When dry, I drew with my brush the chickadee, and lastly stenciled using heart paper doilies and alizarin crimson for patterning.  Have a super Valentine's Day! Love the one you're with! XOXOXOXO!
