I love the Shoebill. They’re just so darn prehistoric looking! You can see the dinosaur in this bird.
This painting is valuable to me because it made me realize why I was unhappy with some of my negative paintings and why I loved others. The technique works better with large areas of color and I used narrow leaves and grasses – I should have done larger palm leaves and broad grasses to let more of the lighter colors show through.
The colors used were Cadmium Yellow Primrose, Pyrrole Red Medium, Ultramarine Blue, and Payne’s Gray.
This was painted with the Qor Watercolors, a Princeton Neptune Quill size 8 and a Neptune Velvetouch Long Round Size 8. Although the Grey Book has toned grey paper and is formulated more for pen, pencil and colored pencil, it works surprisingly well with watercolor.
