Passionate Plumb

I just finished my latest painting of a plum headed parakeet. I just love these birds for their vibrant color and charming personalities. To prepare for  this particular piece, I bought a tube of magenta by Windsor and Newton to add to my paint collection, which really allowed me to get some bright color for that beautiful head.  And I could justify a shopping trip to the art store…yay!!!  I am trying to pull back some on the detailing and allow for abstract creation, and this piece was definitely a journey in the right direction for me.  Watercolor is so beautiful when it is just allowed to flow and blend and do what it does, so hopefully being a little less “demanding” of it will lead to more intriguing effects.
