A Pigeon in Bologna, Italy

Monday, January 29, 2007 at 2:07 PM
I am spending the afternoon browsing my art catalogs in preparation of placing an order for more watercolor paper and some new brushes.

A nice lady living in Italy who came by to visit my blog and was first to post :), said she'd like to see some watercolors here as well. Most of mine are not that good but I do like this one.

This little sketch came about one evening as I was trying to duplicate the colors from a photo I took of a fountain in Bologna, Italy. The sketch was weak so I thought I'd try at least to capture the colors. The whole thing failed because I just couldn't figure it out. So instead I concentrated on a pigeon that sat on the fountain and felt that it just painted itself. I was very happy with the result.
