A Quiet Moment

This piece started out as a wash with one of my new colors from Daniel Smith, Naphthamide Maroon and I think some Lunar Blue also from Danies Smith. I textured with saran wrap. I decided it needed a kingfisher and used white gouache to bring out the whites in the bird and to add sparkle to other areas. I was bike riding yesterday and thinking about this piece and thought that it needed some ferns. I added the fern shapes today and I like how they turned out. When I added cobalt teal to the left edges of the bird, it really make the painting come together.
