This sweet bird on a branch is a single stamp from the new Penny Black release ‘Season of Hope’. The stamp is called ‘season’s tweetings’ and I used it here to create both the bokeh background and the foreground watercoloured image. I filmed my process so you’ll see how I use the same blending technique to build up colour on the leaves and just a few tones to paint the little bird. (the video might look familiar to you if you have a membership with Penny Black)
We have a few centimetres of snow on the ground this morning so this sort of scene is becoming way more likely!
Thanks for dropping by today, I will be back with more of the PB new release over the coming weeks.
