Still life #5–where to next?

It is not really a still life painting but this just fits my previous still life theme so yey. My watercolor classmates and I kind of have a tradition to paint postcards to our classmates like once every 2 or 3 months. One of my classmates is a very smart university professor and she travels around the globe and be a visiting professor here and there. Her name in Thai is Nok which means bird in English. So the latest postcard I painted for her was this one. Very simple but not at all easy. I don’t really like the background color. Though I like chubby little colorful birds and their little red flags (*pats self for coming up with this idea heh*). But my friend loves it! I guess this matters the most.  

Still life painting—still a long way to go

When I first started painting with watercolor, I mostly painted landscape. I still love to paint landscape but also have started to explore more style. Lately I have been into painting still life picture. One thing I lean is that light and shadow are very important! I’m still learning and cannot yet master all the work of  light/shadow but it’s fun and refreshing all the way 🙂
