Bird greeting cards give us the opportunity to come up with different
card making ideas, we are only limited by our own imagination.
They are so much fun to paint and they always make an interesting greeting card.
1. This watercolor of my friend's California quail, "Hope", is fun to embellish. I extend the painting beyond the rectangle in two places using watercolor and my favorite brush, the Loew Cornell Miracle Wedge.
3. The next embellishment is to draw the branch out of the rectangle. I do this in two strokes. The first is the underside of the branch which is done with a heavily loaded brush.
