Macaw in watercolor





My macaw watercolorpainting are finished. I really had to watch my step, not to put in more details.

It has been more difficult with the bird, than with my chameleonpaintings (photo of two). Partly due to the feathers.

Beside that, the paintingtechnique has been different with fewer layers, which results in a less transparent painting.

It has been an interesting experiment though, but I find that glazing layers gives me a more satisfying result than mixing more concentrated watercolors. At least when I wish to paint a loose watercolor.
