Happy Wrens Watercolor By Yvonne Pecor Mucci

This wren birdhouse has hung in our backyard for years.  My father-in-law made this and my daughter painted it when she was very young.  The wren’s sing to each other all day.

This is a small study (6 x 8) which I did to figure out color and composition for a larger version.  I had the pleasure of painting with a friend and she suggested trying her favorite watercolor paper – 140lb Cold Press, Fabriano Artistico.  I love the way this paper took on a lot of water letting the pigments be manipulated for a longer period of time.  Lifting color was quick and easy.  Now I am looking forward to working on the larger painting.
