Any bird lover’s dream ! This cardinal watercolor painting video is from a picture I once saw in my friend Rolly’s Instagram account. I get to be friend with lots of photographers since I was once one of them. When I saw his photo I wanted to paint it so bad! Rolly was kind enough to accept and shared his picture with me. This is really important when comes the time to paint from a photo. Make sure the picture’s owner is okay with you using it as painting reference. Another option is to work from free of royalty picture banks. There are many of them and you can read more about my inspiration for watercolor painting ideas here
At the time I was preparing for my very first art exhibition and I needed big sizes watercolor paintings. So this cardinal watercolor is 18 x 24”. I painted it through a couple of days, taking snap shot for Rolly along the way :) As a token of my gratitude I sent out a print of the cardinal watercolor painting to my dear friend when I was done with it.
Please enjoy this cardinal watercolor painting video and thank my friend :)
