I created a bird nest with gesso and clear bead gel on a wood panel. I then painted it in layers of watercolor. This is how it looked when I started:
The eggs are the color of an egg for the American Robin. Did you know that there is a Crayola crayon that was named Robin Egg Blue in the early 1990’s?
I added several more layers of watercolors:
I then buffed it with a soft damp cloth:
But I found it needed more contrast so I added more paint and defined some of the twigs in the nest with soft vine charcoal:
I’m not sure if it is done so I will set it aside for a few days and then look at it again.
Have you ever found a Robin’s blue egg shell?
