Spring in the Wisteria

This is a painting the I've been working on in bits for the past week. I started by squirting paint directly from the tube onto the paper. Using a spritzer and brush I moved the paint around on the paper. Paint straight out of the tube is very vibrant and strong and mixed really beautifully. When I thought I had interesting colors and shapes I let the piece dry. Next I defined the flower shapes and painted in the bird. My last step was brushwork with tinted gouache which is opaque and covers the watercolor. This piece has a lot of sparkle!
