Galah on hot pressed paper

Galah on hot pressed paper - student project

What a great project and the galah looks so realistic! This was my first time using hot-pressed paper and I learned so many things! I thought I would be frustrated with the paper but was pleasantly surprised. I also tried to remember to let some "mistakes" go and not dwell and those turned into some interesting effects. I love the look of this Galah and gained more skill in layering, water control, and painting wet on wet. 

I got the prettiest mix of colors on this little bird's forehead so I decided to leave the hard edge because I really liked the effect.
