Blue on Blue

These beautiful shy birds would come to the pond near my Ohio studio. I never was able to get close enough for a good camera shot until a caught one while visiting in Florida. This project uses watercolor and masking to get the deep rich color of the background without losing the white edges of the bird. The backlighting on the moss made it appear to almost shimmer. A small scruffy brush to apply the mask will work to save the edges. Be sure to read the masking information before beginning.
