12x9 watercolor on Canson XL 140 lb paper done this afternoon in under an hour. WetCanvas has a patriotic challenge for USA artists so since the bird is white its beak had to be indigo blue. Abstract background is a mix of thalo blue & green, alizarin crimson, ultramarine, Grumbacher red, and Blue Bice for the red, white & blue challenge. Participants have 2 hours to choose an image and paint or sketch it. When dry I did splatters with Blue Bice and Grumbacher red. Image courtesy Susan (tyree).
