Yesterday I made a drawing of a kingfisher sitting on a branch with water underneath it and reflections of fishes floating in the water. I really liked making it beside mamma who was making some thing with me. Guess what? Her 30 day leaf art project. It was really satisfying for her because it was the last day of her 30 day project. I was coloring the kingfisher with camel artist Water color because I think water color is the best for painting, and even dries quickly compared to acrylic color which takes much longer to dry. After making it I was feeling fabulous that I drew and painted a realistic bird for the first time.
And you know why did I decide to do this drawing? Because during the leaf art project, mamma one day made a BIRD called Golden Oriole which is a really beautiful bird. Even though I had started a 15 day leaf art project (but made 3 or 4 times in a week) I switched to making birds because I was so inspired by mamma’s bird art.
And now I am sharing some information about Kingfishers for you guys to read:
Info from here – the Kingfisher is small compared to medium sized colorful bird found around the world. Kingfishers live both in wetlands and woodlands worldwide, feeding mainly on fish but also insects,frogs and crayfish with those kingfisher species that live in the woodlands occasionally eating reptiles birds and even small mammals.
I think I’ll continue to draw and paint more birds. Will keep posting here.
