A "Free Range" (or, artist's choice) type commission for :iconmunebunny:

She requested a mockinbird in a pink flowering dogwood, and left the rest up to me. :)

I had a ton of fun with this one! It was good times, all the way!

Beautiful painting. The flowers are lovely and the bird looks like he's about to fly off the page.

The colours here are really very vibrant. The warm tones lend this piece a sense of peace and awe. I love how the blue of the sky is only pictured in the upper corner - I think that to have it behind everything and convering the page, would be to lose much of the beauty of this.

You have a beautifully accurate grasp of anatomy. :) Mockingbirds are among my favorites, so that's just extra brownie points for me... And that blue/pink contrast, gorgeous.

I have never found a good "ink and watercolor" how-to book. If they looked anything like this, I would buy them.

Wow, this looks amazing! You are very talented with watercolours!

I really love the way you did the background!
Did you first painted it blue and than added water?
And do you paint your background first or as last?

I sometimes paint the background first, sometimes last. In this painting, the blue sky was last. :)
