Birds


After a long time I have finally worked in my art journal again. At the moment I love fresh, light green, so this was the color of my choice for the background. I love the smoothness and feeling of Liquitex acrylic paints and their colors are so vibrant and brilliant. Just wonderful to work with.

This is a very simple page and done very quickly. The joy I felt while doing it was priceless though.

I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday and Studio JRU where very talented artists meet and show what they're working on - please go and take a peek.

I love this. I'm really feeling the need to clean off my art desk and do some colorful, messy, fun playing in my art journal.

Lovely page, I love that green, it's my favorite color of the green family. The birds are very sweet and warm.

Great job!
