Watercolour bird paintings
Client: Personal work | Project: Watercolour bird paintings | Tools: Watercolour paints, Watercolour paper

Watercolours are notoriously difficult to control and I don’t use them a whole lot but I was happy how the paintings and colour came out. Admittedly, I used some really cheap watercolours for this and I’ve actually been struggling to find higher quality paints with the same vibrancy of colour since.
The project turned out to be a very good portfolio piece as watercolour has gained a lot of popularity in food, <ahref=”http://www.elisemartinson.com/portfolio/jacobs-creek-bungalow-block-watercolour/”>beverage and cosmetics packaging in recent years.
