Budgies in the Landing Zone
13 X 18 Watercolor on Hot Pressed Paper
© 2016 Judith G. Glover
Judith has many great memories of trips with family and friends to Sylvan Heights Bird Park in Scotland Neck, North Carolina. She is currently working on a series of paintings about the birds she’s photographed while there. Her next painting in this series will be about flamingos during nesting season.
This painting of budgies is done in the traditional way, using only transparent watercolor. Some parts of the painting, like the tree, are done in multiple layers of color, while the light colors of the background are mostly done with one layer, but it is all paint applied with a brush.
