Some Liquid Refreshment

This will be the lesson for our Intermediate Watercolor Class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta this Monday evening.  I created this painting from a photograph taken by my friend Deb Holmes who generously allows me to paint from her photos.  The original photo was horizontal format, so I used my 'artistic license' to change it to vertical so that the reflection of the tree in the birdbath water made more sense in the painting.  

The painting is 12" x 9" and is painted on Canson cold-pressed 140 lb. watercolor paper with mostly the new QoR Watercolors from Golden Paints.  Their turquoise is awesome.

The grass is magnificent and I love how the birds are "kissing!"
