The Sentinel

This   painting of bluebirds is 8" x 6" and is painted on hot-pressed 140 lb. Arches watercolor paper.  I wanted some practice in painting birds and really like the way the male is standing guard over the female.

This is wonderful. I am imagining what those two birds are saying to each other. Your colors are so clean and fresh. Very nice!

Barb,

The bluebird may be my favorite bird and you've captured them wonderfully.
