A Painting a Day
I have not been keeping up with Bird by Bird, but there’s a lot of nesting activity at the moment and I mean to get back to it.
My friend Jennifer has just alerted me to a gorgeous Swedish blog, 365 Akvareller. My Swedish is not up to the task of finding out the artist’s name or gender, but I urge you to take a look at these beautiful watercolor sketches. The translated description:
365 + 12 watercolors in a year I painted a watercolor for each day plus a large watercolor of each month, which is 365 plus 12 watercolors. Here you can see all. I did not have time to paint every day, but I started a new one every day and could continue with the next few days while the other watercolors dried. I usually say that you cannot do one every day but you can make seven in a week. Each watercolor is
a book with all 377 images.
There are lots of birds here, and I’m motivated to get back to it!
