They're Baaaaack ... The GEESE



I'm trying to render a rough-looking wooden shack, partially covered with moss.  We 'll see how it turns out.



I had a lot of fun, in a watercolor-y sort of way, painting their bums, which are the focus of the painting. Right now, I am slowly building up their form shadows on top, trying to get a loose impression of feathers.

The cows are still waiting for some reflections in the water. I went to the local art supply store yesterday to get some transfer paper [a non-greasy type of carbon paper for watercolor paper] and they only had HUGE rolls of it. Their supplies over-all were generally low or non-existent, and the variety was limited.  Other than mail order, there seems to be a dearth of art supply stores here in western Canada. So I really must get organized, get my cross-border pass, and head down to the States for  some good selection and prices. As for the cows, I will have to trace their image, and transfer it using a home-made transfer paper.

As always, your comments are most welcome!

  2. Oh oh, I also have to paint goose :) My aunt by law asked me a small watercolor with two geese for his daughter.
    But beware, they don't be nude, they are disguised ...

  7. I love the soft and soothing colors of that last rendering of the geese. Being an artist must make you really study things that most of us take for granted and never truly study (like a goose's bum!).

  9. Love the rear view image of the geese! For some reason, I just love geeses paintings and can't wait to see how yours turn out. I have the same problem with finding good art supplies locally - I have resorted to ordering almost everything over the internet!
