Kind of a Still Life

My project for this week was supposed to be given to me by my fiancé.

All he came up with though was still life.

So, I had to decide on a subject matter myself and I decided to do something with the tree outside my window. It looked kinda sad, being as it is winter and there’s two feet of snow, but then all these red cardinals landed on the bird feeders. The scene was quite beautiful. All the tree needed was some color.

That’s the image I’m going for this week. I guess it’s not quite a still life my fiancé had in mind (no bowl or fruit). Below is what I’ve done so far, using watercolor and soft pastels.

On a side note, I added my “snow buddies” I crocheted to my Etsy store. Click the link below to check them out!
