Watercolor: Cardinal in the Snow and Christmas Ball

Here are my last two watercolor pieces done as part of Maria Raczynska’s 12 Days of Christmas.

We recently relocated from Missouri to Washington State. We had so many cardinals in our woods/yard in Missouri, but we do not have cardinals in Washington. I miss them, and I am “drawn” to painting them more than ever now that I don’t see them.

This one was really fun to paint, and I experimented here with the trend of using the bokeh technique.

Your cardinal looks so lively it could almost fly off the paper.

Thank you so much, Terra!
