Feelings of Spring by rieke-b Feelings of Spring by rieke-b
(see English text below)

Aquarell mit weißer Gouache. (Ich habe auch das grüne Passepartout gescannt, deshalb gibt es am oberen Rand einen kleinen 3D-Effekt.) Ein Weihnachtsgeschenk für meinen Vater.

Die Kohlmeise ist einer der häufigsten Vögel in Deutschland. Sie sind sehr bekannt und anpassungsfähig. Ich sehe sie jeden Tag und liebe es, sie zu beobachten. Sie überraschen mich immer wieder mit ihren vielseitigen Gesängen und Geräuschen.

Das Foto, das als Vorlage diente, hatte ich vor einer Weile in meiner DA-Galerie. Es war ein Schnappschuss weil eine der Meisen gerade ihren Flügel aufklappte. Leider war die Qualität des Fotos nicht sehr gut, also beschloss ich, ein kleines Gemälde daraus zu machen. So konnte ich auch noch die Komposition noch verändern. Jetzt bin ich zufrieden. :)

Auftragsarbeiten: Endlich habe ich meine Preisliste fertig, juhuu! Hier in meinem DA Journal: [link]


--------------

Watercolours and white gouache. (I also scanned the green passe-partout, so there's a little 3D effect at the top...)
Painted for my dad as a Christmas present...

The Great Tit, Parus major, is one of the most numerous birds of Germany. They are very well-known and adaptable. I see them every day and always love to watch them. They keep surprising me with their big variety of songs and sounds.

I had the original photo I made in my DA gallery for a while. It was a snapshot because of the funny wing position, but the photo quality wasn't very good. I decided to make a painting from it so I could change the composition. Now I'm satisfied. :)

Traditional art commissions: Finally made a price list, yay! See my DA journal here: [link]

The spreaded wing looks a bit weird to me, but except that they look pretty much alive! :)

:D I guess so. I was surprised, too, since I painted this from a photo I made. The bird was just folding up one wing. :)

Absolut wunderbare Arbeit und für mich persönlich einfach total Wert in die Favouriten aufzunehmen.
Die Kolorierung, Schattensetzung als auch die ganze Komposition sind einfach fabelhaft gelungen.
Hut ab! ^^

What cute little birds! I love the colors you'd added to the branches, so lively! The wing position on the top one is a little awkward but it looks like he's stretching so it's still good. :) I can imagine how fun they must be to watch, they look like very personable little guys. :D

Thank you very much! :D
Like I said, I painted this from a photo, so the wing position really looked like this. I think it's funny, too! I guess it had just landed on the branch and was folding its wing...
Yes, these little guys are great! Very lively, not too shy and quite loud. :D

Oh, ich glaub die kleinen Kerlchen sitzen hier auch immer vor dem Fenster auf dem Baum. Super schönes Bild, und ich mag, dass der Hintergrund weiß ist. Schöner hätte das Foto auch nicht sein können :) *schmalz*

Hehe, danke sehr! :bow: Schau nochmal genau hin, aber wenn die Vögel, die bei dir vor dem Fenster sitzen, auch so knallige Bäuche und schwarze Köpfe haben, dann sind es auf jeden Fall Kohlmeisen. :)
Ja, das Foto war gar nicht so doll, bis auf die witzige Flügelposition. Mit dieser Anordnung gefällt mir das Motiv viel besser. :)
