Beautiful Spring in MO

Such beautiful spring days we are having here in Missouri! Most days lately have been sunny and warm, but not hot—perfect for me! The trees on our five acres (mostly maples and oaks) have been totally leaved out for a few days now.

I have been doing a few pieces of watercolor art, nothing structured, just following my whims. 

This pen/ink and watercolor fuchsia flower I completed following a You Tube tutorial. These beautiful flowers are interesting, as they appear to be upside down.

This little fawn was copied from a book I have used a lot lately, called Watercolor With Me in the Forest by Dana Fox. 

This is one of the birds that always can be found at our bird feeders at the edge of our Wonder Forest, which we look down on, out our bedroom windows. It is a Tufted Titmouse, very pretty. For this piece, I found a photo on Pixabay (an app with copyright free photos) as a reference. It is my first attempt (I think) to paint something from a real-life photo, as opposed to a picture of a painting, which is my typical process (and will continue to be for awhile, as I think I will be a beginner for a long time!).
