I worked on this little Indigo Bunting painting - another small (eighth sheet) painting. Right now, it's definitely at the ugly stage! Sometimes it's hard not to give up on something like this - but I know with just a little bit more TLC, it will be fine. Just need to do a rhinoplasty on that beak that got too big (how did THAT happen?), and then soften those feathers so he doesn't look pasted on the background (that's what happens when you do the background first and then paint in the subject).
I finished the little landscape painting (that was a lesson for my beginners) by just getting out my sponges and dabbing the color on and then spritzing and splattering a bit.
Sweetie's sister is coming for a visit so won't have much painting time this week. But hope you all have a great week and a fantastic weekend. We're moving into July with lots of hot, hazy, humid days. But that's summer!
