Bringer of Dusk by windfalcon Bringer of Dusk by windfalcon
Before the dream, there must be dusk...

A companion piece to Follow my Dream, as a pair of Dreamfalcon commissions for *jeffzz111.

More paper experimentation! This time, it's on Fabriano cold-press. I think I like the hot-press more, but when I want texture, I'm definitely going to use this instead of the Arches. It's not as 'thirsty' as the Arches and allows lifting, but still holds onto pigment well enough so previous layers don't come up with washes.


Watercolor on 7 X 10 inch cold-press Fabriano watercolor paper

I've always found it difficult to draw birds, especially predatory ... Very nice)))

I love the contrast between purple and yellow and all the details in the feathers. Awesome painting!
