fortnightly offering: the green kookaburra jug

This little laughing japanese kookaburra (like so many objects I own) was a gift from my mum. And I do love him so. I found it really hard to know when to stop with this painting. I was tempted to add a blue wash on top of the green background and work over the fabric so that the check was further defined, then maybe more shadow, more detail ... but then I'm sure I'd think of more things to do and more and more and I'd keep working on him until the paper started to pilling, so best to stop now, while he still has a lightness to him.

He is on offer for $45, so please email at imogeneve(at) me if interested. Deets: An original watercolour and gouache painting of a green kookaburra jug filled with nasturtiums. Image measures approximately 25x16cm nestled on a sheet of A4 Archers watercolour paper.

Hope everyone is having a lovely week, 
Im x.

Update: SOLD! (:
