THE TEA PARTY

NEW WORKS FROM THE STUDIO OF ART BY WENDY
THE TEA PARTY - 8.5 x 12 - Available

My tea party is now in full swing.  The red winged blackbirds were buzzing around the feeders out at Riefel Bird Sanctuary when I was there last.  Their colours and songs really caught my eye.  I was particularly happy to capture the sprayed form of the one in the center.  He was busy calling to the others and seemed to be running the show.  The old feeders have lovely old fashion lines and I thought they made a great mix.  As you can see it is graphite except for that the touch of colour, that is watercolour pencils.  I am not really interested in doing the entire picture in colour pencils but I do like that touch to bring it to life.  It seems to be my ‘thing’ right now and I am just chaffing at the bit to do more.  I have so many ideas floating around in my head; I can’t keep up with them right now!

Thanks Dors and Carol. The red winged black birds are such a colourful bird and are happy to greet us whenever we are out on a walk.
