Turkey in Negative and Reductive Style

  • #DoodlewashNovember2021: Gratitude.

Did you know that turkeys purr when they are grateful? Other sounds that turkeys make are yelps, clucks, cackles, kee-kees, putts, bluluqus, and purrs! It is mainly the male turkey that gobbles.

I used the negative painting method, as well as the reductive method to remove some color.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. Interesting turkey sounds! Your paintings are always so vibrant, no matter what technique you use! Have you done a review of the Aquafine watercolors?
