I have a question

Black bird, June 2014 — ink and watercolour, 240 x 180 mm, 2014

I’m on a mission to add a few ink and watercolour drawings/paintings to my Etsy shop ― hence the reworking of old favourites such as this bird silhouette (which is now for sale). The original black bird appeared a couple of years ago (click here to see the post). He was my second Shoot it, Sketch it and he was also the subject of my first haiku.

And that brings me to my question. Which of the following would you like to see me draw again? Feel free to vote for more than one : )

  1. Re drawing or painting is a fun thing to do and a learning thing too. I have done many of my paintings over (and over) sometimes as many as ten times until I am happy. I must admit that was a few years ago, now days I will do several sketches and then take one good pass at it, if it doesn’t work I do it over once. If not good then I never go back, but choose something that has the same feeling or reason but maybe different image. Like your idea of having people vote!
    How do you think your second take came out as to your first? I liked it.

    1. I like them both but for different reasons. First sketches or paintings usually have something magical about them — I find that, anyway. I think it’s because I’m more relaxed and ‘in the moment’ and less concerned about ‘getting it right’ (whatever that is). I’m curious to see if I can use the same reference material more than once. Time will tell.
