Two In Blue

 

How does it feel to water color

when you’re just beginning?

When there’s no room for a goof–

no wiping up a gob

plopped wrong-

just imagine

and

go with the flow

like this:

 

Dip into blue;

pause;

take a breath;

a focus on that spot

on the left

then dare

drop

color;

a swoosh

of the brush

a flick

for the tail;

Quick.

Rinse.

Dip into yellow–

no pause,

just

drop

yellow

there-

yes, there

and watch

it

blend

and

flow

to

green.

Rinse.

Repeat.

Sigh and let dry.

Pen in beak- black outlines for yellow.

Pen in eyes; round, wide.

Highlight white: two dots.

Ah.

Two In Blue–

Birds.

Ok.

I can do that.
