I always love your stuff. I'm a big fan of your birdies; I have three budgies. I'm very sorry for your loss, it's hard to lose a birdy.

These are fantastic!!! What brand of paints do you use? I'm forever trying to acheive this look with my paints but it ends up looking really pal and washed out.

I'm so sorry about the passing of your bird! I've lost too many pets over the years and know how hard it is.

I use winsor & newton cotman watercolors in the tubes. To get the colors really vivid, you need to use a lot of pigment and less water and sometimes do a couple of coats. I also use Prang brand semi-moist pans sometimes and they give really vivid colors, the only thing is that when you use them heavily pigmented, they don't dry all the way and can end up kind of shiny/sticky. The cotman ones don't have that semi-moist ingredient in them, so they dry nice and matte. I hope this helps... Thanks for the comments Smiley

Very nice! I love the first one. The one with the peanuts is funny, and the cupcake one is unexpected. The last is very striking. That would have taken a lot of masking fluid!

These are amazing!  Love the bird with the trainers, it puts a contemporary edge on the birdie sweetness.  And the green bird chasing the peanuts is hilarious!   Grin

Your work is beautiful, but it's your sense of humor in it that I really love. The running peanuts just made me grin.
