  1. wishing I could have watched you paint this…

    • The white feathers are stroked in with Golden airbrush titanium white. Used a very tiny brush and the size is no longer visible. The opaque white is a departure for me. I washed in the purple background, dropped some water in to spread out a space for the moon, painted in silver (Daniel Smith metallic silver watercolor), and added surrounding colors to bring out the moon. Just let me know if there is anything else that I can pass on to you about this painting.

  2. hmm, thanks for the description of the technical details…. still would have loved to watch it happen 🙂

  3. He looks wise and friendly.
