The Bird I painted while thinking of Jill



Watercolour, inkpen and coloured pencil, 30 x 40 cm (11,8 x 15,7")

I painted this bird today, from a picture I took last summer in a beautiful park in Paris.

I wanted to paint something colourful, somptuous, as I was thinking of Jill. Because her art ressembles beautiful exotic birds, and rollercoasters and jelly beans and hippy summer clothes, southamerican colours, childhood dreams.

They are a colour-firework, sparkling. Curious? Please visit her, she has several blogs, I only mention two: you'll find the others easily.

Ich wollte etwas für Jill malen, etwas somptuöses, farbenreiches. Da entstand heute dieser Pfau, nach einem Photo welches ich letztes Jahr im Jardin des Bagatalelle in Paris aufgenommen hatte.
Jills Kunst ist wunderbar farbig und erinnert mich an Jahrmärkte, Zuckerwatte und knallrosa Erdbeerschaum, an guatemaltekische Farben und Stoffe, an bunte Bonbons und Sommerfeste:)
Ich habe nur zwei ihrer vielen Blogadressen angegeben, die anderen findet Ihr leicht selbst heraus.

Lovely painting of this peacock Andrea. I love the soft colors and the details in her feathers. And the background colors really make her stand out.
