Here are 2 preliminary watercolour studies I did to become familiar with the forms and also to get back into watercolours after a long break from them. Also to get used to working from photos again.
'Little and large', marine iguana study
'Pair bond', study of blue footed booby bird
I was inspired by the Flickr photos of the galapagos fauna by John Whitaker, who kindly gave us permission to use his photos in our art community project.
I am not sure if I will go on to do a final painting in watercolours...we have until the end of the month or perhaps even until the end of next month to play with this project!
Bye for now....
