Created using watercolour pencils to make a card for someone. I did this in many different layers so that different colours came out well and showed depth. The feathers had several different oranges, reds, browns and yellows used on them and the dark bits of the feathers had purple, blue and green used on them, this was to show the variations in colour and reflection as well as to make it not look as flat as it would have with just black on it.
The last picture of 2015, it’s certainly been a year full of a lot of changes, some good like keeping my job amidst a few redundancies, I’ve met some of the best, kindest and most entertaining people in 2015 and I’ve started to see some people and my life in a very different light. However the year was overshadowed by the biggest sadness I’ve possibly ever felt in losing Melody. Hopefully 2016 brings with it better times and a lot more creativity. 🙂
I enjoyed doing this picture and playing around with my new Derwent watercolour pencils that I got for Christmas. It’s certainly nice having the full set of 72 to utilise.

Happy New Year to everyone and hopefully 2016 works out better than this year has 🙂
