I think I would really love to be a bird. The freedom to fly and explore and see the world from above seems - magical! I am a little obsessed with birds! I have started a few larger watercolour paintings that I want to share with you today. Living in Cape Town we have beautiful sugarbirds and sunbirds that come to drink the nectar from all the indigenous fynbos and stunning proteas that grow wild in the surrounding mountains or come to the proteas and aloes in my garden. I wanted to try and capture their incredible beauty. Their colours are so amazing and I think watercolour is a great medium to try capture their gorgeous colours.
We will be gong to Kirstenbosch Gardens these July school holidays where I will try to take more photos of birds and try and find some time to do another larger painting.
