Here's how I start my paintings.
I begin with a detailed pencil sketch and then start to fill in with watercolor.
I add layers of color and work in the details.
More layers of color on the bird and the beginning of the background.
Detail on the feathers.
Another close up.
When I started this painting, a pair of blue jays were singing in the trees behind my house.
A lovely summer sound.

I went to a bacon themed party and brought these items:
cherry tomatoes filled with bacon, lettuce and mayo with a basil leaf garnish
chewy, chocolaty brownies with crispy bacon mixed in and sprinkled on top
Bacon Sugar Cookies
no bacon at all - just regular sugar cookie dough colored with food coloring, layered, sliced and drizzled with a powdered sugar glaze

Hmmm. Pink sharpie circles, black sharpie dots and pink watercolor.
Good as new!
