More Original Watercolor Bird Paintings - Wren and Oriole

I've been working on more birds and will have new paintings to post soon. In the meantime, I've been remiss in keeping updated as someone close to me pointed out that she had not seen several of the completed paintings posted. Sorry!

Here are two previously finished works. The Oriole is one of the backyard and best loved birds. I just love that he is orange and black and looks mischievous. Perfect for Halloween.

"Notorious", 5x7 original watercolor, Male Northern Oriole, Available

In painting this series, I seem to have an affection for Wrens. I'm happy to say that this Marsh Wren has a wonderful new home but I am working on one or two more.

"Songster", 5x7 original watercolor Marsh Wren, Sold

I love your spattery backgrounds for these pictures.

Were you ever able to make prints of the bunny?

Monette Satterfield said...

Thanks everyone for the positive comments - it's so encouraging.

freebird, I have the bunny card back and am checking into getting prints or cards made. I'll post, soon I hope, with that information. Thanks for asking!

You really master the use of watercolour, and you apply it so freely and creatively. Beautiful.

These are very delicate and beautiful! The oriole is splendid, with his bright red color!
