Watercolour, humour, this and that

This is the only time you will see me comment on twitter!  Loose reference to a bird I don't know the name of and where I got it from, so if someone knows please let me know.  All I know is that it isn't one of my photo's.  Not as if I sell my work but if I paint something from someone else's picture I write their name on the back.

So it is entitled 'Don't Know Bird' or 'Non Compus Birdus'.  I am venturing forth on my journey to paint anything - Jack of all trades and master of none - that is my goal at the moment.  I have been inspired to paint this little bird by watching a video of Karl Fletcher who goes by the title The Watercolour Journal on facebook.  Brilliant!  Check it out.

I thought it was going wrong so added a touch of salt, spatter, cling film and w/c wax crayon.  Not too bad for me!  May be trying another bird one day ............

Now what can I paint next?
