I am no Audubon
I am no Audubon artist--- but I LOVE his work -- and am influenced by his vision and style.
I tried my hand at capturing some birds of the Everglades that have been of interest to me.
I painted them on TWIN ROCKERS handmade paper -- complete with the dramatic deckle edges.
I only used three pigments-- Daniel Smith Shadow Violet and M. Graham Cobalt Teal and Winsor/Newton Charcoal Grey.
Together.. they made a view of the Glades that's fitting today... rainy, wet, grey, humid and mysterious.
