A member of the Bird Flight series - the Belted Kingfisher, a familiar presence along Isa's local bike trail. 2022.
19" x 27", in gallery white frame.
Original watercolor on watercolor paper, framed.
A few years ago, Isa was up before dawn watching the birds above her. These flight patterns, these imprints into air, space, and sky were gorgeous and stayed with her. Contour drawings of different species' flights came first, then a handful of paintings, later even more and now a collection.
The belted kingfisher is a familiar presence along a local bike trail. It’s flight is so erratic that they seem tipsy but these patterns translate well to paper. The color palette is from the river moss and wet rock.
