Creative Monday Challenge 46 and 47 - Stay Loose

COUNTRY BIRDHOUSES
Original Watercolor - 11x15

The Creative Challenge was to use a loosely painted background for  your subject matter.
I started this painting as a class demo and wet the paper first. I then applied the light green, manganese blue and some burnt sienna randomly, keeping away from the center area. I also spattered some of those colors here and there to help loosen things up. When everything was dry I began to negative paint around the birdhouses to start defining them. 

Creative Monday Challenge #47 - Use the complementory colors blue and orange in a painting.
