30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 8

"Jeweled Jay" LWatry©2014
Week two, Day 8 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days found me painting a Blue Jay. I think Blue Jays are a very pretty bird and already seem to be wearing jewels in their feathers. I guess this Jay wanted to be even fancier and decided to put on some jewels!

The Jay was painted with a mix of cobalt and manganese with just a touch of permanent rose in a few places. The feathers at the tail area were painted with Peacock blue, a very bright turquoise blue.

"Jeweled Jay" is a 6"x6" watercolor and it is available for purchase on Daily Paintworks for $90 - SOLD
