Pine Grosbeak Card
Printed from a watercolor painting of a pine grosbeak. The Pine Grosbeak (Pinicola enucleator) is a large member of the true finch family, Fringillidae. Its voice is geographically variable, and includes a whistled pui pui pui or chii-vli. The song is a short musical warble. The breeding habitat of the Pine Grosbeak is coniferous forests. The Pine Grosbeak forages in trees and bushes. It mainly eats seeds, buds, berries and insects. Outside of the nesting season, it often feeds in flocks. I use the 'limited palette' of the three primary colours for my watercolor paintings. This produces all the shades and hues you see in my paintings. Red, yellow and blue transparent watercolor in both warm and cool shades can be mixed to obtain any colour in the spectrum. I find I have more control over the final results. My artwork covers a wide range of subjects. I paint whimsically humourous, one-of-a-kind art to serious fine art. However, my passion is painting portraiture of animals and people. I love to capture the emotion of the moment. Both subjects have their own personalities. This makes the end result very challenging AND rewarding. I accept private commissions, working from good photographs. My medium is watercolor. However, I also work with graphite, pen and ink. Prices for originals are set by the square inch. Please contact me to obtain further information if you have interest in commissioning a piece of artwork. All prices quoted include insurance and shipping costs. My Trillium Gallery at http://www.trilliumgallery.com/photos-to-portraits.html will give you the opportunity to purchase watercolor original portraits from photographs.
