Mix It Monthly 2nd painting - Funny Hats and My Orchid and Violet January 15, 2014


 
I thought that I would share this new picture of my orchid as it gets more beautiful every day. Everyone who comes in enjoys it so much. But I am also sharing a picture of a lovely little violet that I almost lost. I had forgotten about it and didn't water it for a long time and when I brought it in for the Winter, I didn't know if it would live or not. But here it is blooming and beautiful too!
 
I was feeling really happy the other day and I wanted to do a whimsical bird painting for Mix It Monthly. I completely forgot that we had a color scheme! Duh! But I am going to share it anyway. This is the magazine picture that inspired me.
 
And this is my painting that I did. I call this painting the cocky cardinal.

What a wondful bird with an extraordinary hat! Love it! The trunk looks so real. Beautiful!!!

Hihi, I also had the problem with my sky which was blue first as I had forgotten about the colour-scheme. I had to put another layer of the right colour to fix it.

I like your orchid, it's gorgous! And how happy you can be that your violet is still alive. This could have happened to me too.

I love this serious bird with his black hat with the pink feather. I liked seeing the magazine picture that was the inspiration for your painting.
