I recently was feeling the need to re-purpose some wimpy old watercolors, so I dug into the "recycle" stash and covered a couple with gesso, then felt free to play. This started out with lots of layers of yellow ochre, nickle gold, some blue stenciling and I don't know what all. Then I used vine charcoal to draw the birds, fixed that, then layered some thin veils of white over the top, and added some splashes of red.
