When an Image Coo's to You

When an image that's not yours calls to you or as in this case Cooing! to me, I find a way of making it uniquely mine knowing that other artists may also use the reference to create their art.
If you are a realist painter and paint exactly what you see and exact colours this might be hard to come up with something original but for artists like me who use expressive brush marks, texture and my own colour choices and not forgetting the fact that watercolour does some unique work all on its own, an Original piece of art is guaranteed. Thank you to Ruth Archer for sharing her fabulous image on Paint My Photo.

  2. Brilliant colors on the pigeon, Lorraine! I think you got them exactly right. Beautiful composition.

  3. Awww, I always like the way you handle adding your touch to bird pieces Lorraine!

  4. Beautifully done, Lorraine! I love how you recreate the bark and the addition of the flowers below the pigeon.

  5. You are so good at making something your own with your colors and textures. Well done!
