Bird sketches

Some watercolor and gouache work based on photos, trying to get the hang of the medium.

Painting from Maguire Gardens near the LA overpass. A little gouache and watercolor sketch. I did tweak it a tiny bit in photoshop, but only a little.

Stunt Rd painting 11_14_10

It's pretty hard to get a good color correction for oil paintings sometimes. The background was washy, but appears a little faded instead below. I was using multiple levels of curves and color balance adjustment layers, but I was doing so much digital work I ended up doing a little paintover (above).

A little painting off of Stunt Rd, Santa Monica last Sunday. The last of my 6" x 8"s.
