Draw a Bird Day (July remix)

For anyone interested in having another go at Draw a Bird Day, the eighth is a week from today!


I want to once again thank and recognize A Wing and A-Way for letting us know about Draw a Bird Day. We sa-lute you *wings raised*!

This is my first watercolor (paint, not pencil) bird. I was going for loose. I think I was tightening up a bit toward the end. I shall try for a loooooooooooser version next go-round!

Is it Friday yet? I think we’re getting close. I hear fireworks…….

  1. I like it, your background blending is really nice and makes that blue stand out a lot. Oh I’ve created a “let’s collaborate ” section on my blog and will be posting photos of birds like you said for Draw a Bird Day (I hope the photos I got are ok, nice and bright little ones) Have a great Wednesday πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Kathy! I always appreciate your visits and comments. I almost didn’t post this one. I wanted a different result, but with watercolor, best to go in like you’re opening a book, wanting to see what happens.


      1. It could – but is is simply lovely how it is! It is quite loose compared to many. There are so many styles and so many degrees of “loose” Sometimes too loose is too abstract. You’ve capture the essense of this beautiful bird. I adore it.

  3. I love your color choices Laura, beautiful! I read the link to the draw a bird day and the origins, it’s a very uplifting story. I’ll join in next week and draw a bird on the 8th.

    1. I hope you do! What do you think of the style…..too tight, too loose? A mix? I’m trying to find the right balance, and trying to find my style, I guess. Charles Reid videos are resonating right now!

      I look forward to your watercolor posts!


I'd love to hear from you! Constructive criticism is most appreciated. Thank you!
