Blossoms by windfalcon Blossoms by windfalcon
A little painting to welcome spring (as late as it may be)! The cherry blossoms are just starting to bloom in Connecticut, where last year they had started blooming in MARCH. Crazy! It's good to have a normal spring for once :D

The blossoms on this bird's head are loosely inspired by cherry blossoms. They were actually a last-minute addition since I wanted to have some flowery bits floating down. This painting was an experiment to test some sample paper I had, and while I absolutely hate the paper, I think the painting came out okay, considering the paper difficulties :3

Watercolor and a little colored pencil on cold-press watercolor paper. The 'inner' part is 4X6 inches, extending to outer dimensions of 6X8 inches. This painting is matted and available also if anyone wants a flower-molting bird on their wall! [link]

I love how the top of the branch and the falling flowers come off and away from the background border.  It really adds to the painting.
