'A Cardinal in Fall'

Creative Team Member Buffy St John has shared a truly inspirational video tutorial on YouTube . Watch Buffy here as she takes you through the steps and techniques to create 'A Cardinal in Fall' using the Ken Oliver Color Burst.



Buffy says:

"When you see a red bird in winter, you will prosper in spring. When you hear a Cardinal sing, your sadness will soon be lifted. When a red bird shows up, help is on the way."

Cardinals are a constant garden companion to me here in North Carolina. I love to watch the male and female pairs come to the feeders and water features.

One of my favorite subjects to paint in winter scenes, I was inspired to paint these beautiful birds in a Fall palette using the wonderful Color Burst pigments.
These pigments are vibrant, intense and most important to me; transparent.
As a traditional watercolor artist I have found a new love...obsession if you will; Color Burst!



Thank you Buffy for sharing this awesome tutorial.
