Epic watercolours

Hello and welcome to my second blog post. 

Last night I continued painting crows and moved on to peacocks for my 'who is happy?' project.

I used A5 card and the watercolours Intense blue and Sap green.  I decided to add a border, not sure if it works, but I think the overall painting looks a little royal and epic. I like this look. Here is a close up of the epic crow.

For the previous paintings I began by first drawing out the crows in pencil and then painting it. For the flying peacock I painted below I started using watercolours straight away without doing a pencil drawing first. 

I used blue paint to initially outline the peacock and then I added the colours. I like how fluid it looks. I again think that the painting looks a little royal because of the colours used.
