Red-Necked Tanager & the Cuttlelola Pen #52WeeksofWatercolourBirds #Watercolor #Cuttlelola

For week 19, I chose to paint a Red-necked Tanager.  After the fact, I changed it into a line and wash, using the Cuttlelola Electronic Dotspen that my brother gave me for my birthday.  It’s so cool!  In essence, you hold the tip a little way off the paper and it dot…dot…dots super fast.  I had over-worked the paper a bit, and was having trouble getting the darker values down, so I used the pen to put them in.

You know I’ll be doing a review on the pen before too long, lol!

This bird was painted using Lukas watercolors in the Global Art Materials Field Watercolor Artist Journal Hand Book, 7 by 10-Inch that I’m using for the ’52 Weeks of Watercolour Birds’.
