Seagull in watercolour


Vacuuming and watercolour goes really well together. I completed this piece today, while I was cleaning the house. I usually haven't the patience to wait for the paint to dry. But going back and forth between vacuuming and painting helped, so I finally finished my first ever bird in watercolour. :)

Dear Evelyn,
Good on you, busy lady & artist. Cute work and paper's effect is very interesting.

wow, a really lovely painting! I hope the benefit of painting on cleaning was as great as cleaning on painting in which case your place is now sparkling.

Amazing details, Evelyn! I love how the gull looks sort of arrogant, like he's 'letting' you draw him :-D

Lovely artwork - if that's your first bird you'd better try more, as you seem to have caught that one beautifully. Nice idea to do a bit of housework and a bit of play in turns.

now that is called "creating in the middle of things!" your artwork is super fab!!

He's beautiful! sometimes when I'm feeling reluctant to get in the studio, I will remember about the paint drying time, and I can talk myself into working on something in bits and pieces.
