Nest – #WorldWatercolorGroup


Nest – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

– April new watercolor month challenge:  Spring Things!

Yesterday prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash was  “NEST”  I am joining in this month whenever is possible.

Yesterday prompt was “Nest”  sorry I have posted this late for yesterday but is good for today.  Also if my day was busy, I am happy I managed to paint. I love “Nests” I think they are so precious and beautiful almost magical when it happens to came across one. I painted an illustration of a traditional nest but with blue eggs.

I have read some interesting facts about blue eggs: “The eastern bluebird lays the smallest blue egg – approximately 4/5 of an inch – of all the songbirds that lay blue eggs. The eggs of western and mountain bluebirds are slightly larger than the eastern bluebirds, but smaller than the eggs of robins, blue jays, starlings, thrushes and catbirds.” (Source:  sialis.org)

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black, white pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black and Dark Red ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. Traced with a vintage Thinex Carmine Red 425T pencil. I painted on a mixed media sketckbook.

You can see more of my Paintings visiting my  GALLERY  there are several Galleries you find  them in the drop down menu under Watercolors.
