Pine cones are beautiful! I tackled painting one this week, thinking it would be very difficult, with all the different levels and detail, but it actually came together easily!

Do you hear doves where you live? Every morning and evening I hear doves at our home. Their call is beautiful and peaceful. When a mourning dove landed on my birdbath one morning, I managed a quick photo as she glanced my way.

Good Morning, 8x8 original watercolor on gesso-covered watercolor paper. $50

Good Morning, 8×8 original watercolor on gesso-covered watercolor paper. $50. Matted to fit into a 12×12 frame.

The texture in the sky has been created by a sweeping movement into the wet gesso using the end of a paint brush. After the gesso dried, I drew the dove and bird bath onto the paper. I then I painted cobalt and purple watercolor into the background, and sprayed lightly with clear water. The bird bath texture I created by laying plastic wrap into wet watercolor paint and allowing it to dry.

I love the morning light on this dove. When I painted her, I kept her feathers very smooth and pure, with little texture, as they have a perfect, almost ceramic look to them. When combined with the textured background, the smoothness is accentuated. She is  is beautiful. Hope you think so, too. Happy Thursday everyone!
