Watercolor # 13---A lovely Sparrow 水彩画 ---一只小麻雀

Sparrow is a common bird we often see. Lying in my bed, I could hear them singing beside the window every day.

Their feather are brown, short and thick. Their eyes are dark and round, look at their surroundings carefully , once they find suspicious circumstance, they suddenly fly from the climatic conditioning cabinet. It's difficult for you to get close to them.

Last weekend was sunny, I want to shoot a few photos they drunk in the square, but every time I want to approach them, they jump vigilantly, it wasn't allowed to close to them, they were so cute!

Today I'd like to share with you watercolor---a little sparrow. Small as it is, it's really not easy to paint. Especially its feathers. I think it is difficult to draw the animals and humans no matter what kind of technique of painting you use. You need to have a little patience, you can listen to some good music when you are painting, so you will find time seems to slip away much faster.

麻雀是我们经常见的一种小鸟啦。在我的卧室床上,躺着就能听到它们每天叽叽喳喳的在玻璃窗外歌唱着。

头上的棕色羽毛又短又密,毛茸茸的。眼睛黑黑的,圆溜溜的,机灵地探视四方,一旦发现异常情况,使会忽地从空调箱上飞起来。你想靠近它都很难。

上个周末非常晴朗,我想在广场上想拍几张它们喝水的照片,可每次靠的太近,它们就非常警觉的跳来跳去,即不离开也不让你接近,还不时地在草地上寻觅食物,真是可爱级了!

今天就给大家分享一下小麻雀。 别看它小,画起来还真挺麻烦的,尤其是羽毛一片片的,毛茸茸的。我觉得动物和人物不管你用什么画种,都是比较难画的。

你需要有一点点耐心的,所以一般我画画的时候也会选择一些好听的音乐来听,闲暇时光就这么悄悄地被我挥霍掉了。


工具 Material:

画笔 2只(一大一小),水彩颜料,水彩纸,水杯,纸巾。

过程 The Process :

1、Make a sketch.

用铅笔画出线稿。

2、Color its head and its back, I used burnt umber, cadmium yellow, permanent rose.

给麻雀的头部和背部上色,我用了褐色+土黄+玫瑰红。

3、THe head is painted with darker color. Its back is painted with lighter color for the base and then paint darker slowly. So dose its tail.

头部的颜色深一些,背部的颜色先用浅色涂一次,然后再叠加深一点的颜色,羽毛看起来有层次感。尾巴也是一样。

4、Color its stomach, I used cadmium yellow, burnt sienna, cerulean blue and a lot of water. firs you paint with cadmium yellow, next cerulean blue, and at last burnt sienna. you don't use the mix of them, because they looks green when you mix.

给麻雀的肚子上色。用土黄+赭石+湖蓝色,加大量的水调和。先用土黄色浅浅的涂一遍,再涂湖蓝色一层,再涂赭石一层。然后再给麻雀的头部上色。

5、Color its mouth. I used payne's gray, purple lake, cadmium yellow. first is cadmium yellow and next is the combination of payne's gray and purple lake.

然后给麻雀的嘴巴上色。用佩恩灰+紫色+黄色。先用黄色加大量的水调和浅浅的涂一次,然后再用佩恩灰和紫色调和趁湿直接涂抹上。

6、Color its legs with pink, and then paint its eyes. I used the combination of payne's gray and purple lake to paint them.
and you need to set aside its high light.

接下来给麻雀的腿上色,浅粉色涂完再加深一层。然后给眼睛上色,用佩恩灰+紫色混合涂抹在眼部周围。留出高光部分,先画出浅的眼白然后再上深色的部分。

7、Paint shadow using the combination of payne's gray and purple lake.

画出阴影,佩恩灰+紫色。

8、Lastly, wash the edge of its back and head with a small brush,

最后再修饰一下边缘虚的部位,用笔蘸清水洗一下,让它和白纸过渡的更加自然,一只小麻雀就完成了!

I leave no trace of wings in the air, but I am glad I have had my flight.

her eyes are real !

thanks!

Really nice, totally agree with that! It looks a bid sad though... Hope nothing bad happened to it.

thank you @steemittromney. why you say it looks a bid sad ?

I think its it's beak, its a bit curved down. The ones around my house look more like they are constantly annoyed with tight lips if you now what i mean hehe I love it tho

Wow amazing art !

https://steemit.com/art/@marty-arts/my-art-parrot-watercolor-painting-process

your partot are very beautiful!

Awesome parrot Marty. I think I will do a bird of some kind in my next airbrush video. Thanks for sharing.

Indeed, amazing work!

There used to be so many sparrows around where I lived as a kid. Now I don't think I have seen any here in London but this did bring back some good memories. And listening to music while painting is always a decent choice! I enjoy listening to a good audio book while painting as well. :)

listening to a good audio book is a good idea, look forward to seeing your painting. :)

Mine are a bit different since I paint on models/miniatures not on paper. :)

I want to see it :)

I have quite a few step by step postslike you do but for some of my minis, you can check them out . :)

Say some magical words and let her fly! She's too beautiful to just remain drawn :) Amazing skills.

thank you for the commenting @tezmel :)

Very nice job @helane. I don't think I've done any birds. At least not in paint. I've done a few eagle tattoos. I did this condor.

But yours is much nicer. Well done.
Fallowing and upvoting.

your tattoos are amazing! keep sharing.

Thanks, @helene

Lovely little watercolour, @helene :o) Sparrows are amongst my very favourite birds. They've helped me to get back on my feet again very many times, and were, in fact, the thing that motivated me to come back to life during a period of severe existential crisis so bad that I couldn't get out of bed for several days. They are such simple, beautiful, endearing little beings. "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny at the market? Yet not one of them falls but the lord knows its name." (I'm not religious, but I love that quote! It reminds me of the One we all are, and how even the most supposedly 'insignificant' part of that Whole is precious).

I've hit the 'follow' button and upvoted this post, so I'll look forward to exploring more of your art. If you'd like to, you could return the compliment? I'm an artist, too! :o) Jay x

太強了!!!! 說到麻雀,我們家也是很多鳥類,我們還在陽台還弄個一個小木巢,讓他們天冷的時候可以進來休息~

哇,你真有爱心,我家没阳台,要不我想养只鹦鹉,哈哈。

如果有小窗台的話,也是可以給他有個高台養他! :)

你对自己要求太高了。真的画活了。:)

So talented! Makes me want to give this a try :)
Thank you for sharing.

Water color painting is not easy. You apply paint then wait for it to dry then paint again. And you do this over and over again. It really needs a lot of patience. Congratulations on your painting. Its beautiful.

Wow cool one i like the process
Please visit my page im also drawing (:

Really interesting, thanks for posting! Do follow me @samhenry for my new steemit paintings.

是吗?那还不错。

Beautiful..

Me parece demasiado hermosa esta ilustración. saludos.

Your art is refined. Love your watercolors!

You're so good at this. How I wish I have that kind of talent. I love your painting by the way 😊

thank you,@marianmiller, in fact, you also can draw it as long as you have time to do it.

Looks beautiful.

Its a beautiful drawing of a creature we see everyday. A little gift from above to showcase the freedom that one has. Also early bird catches the worm.

yeah, thank you for the commenting.

Most welcomed.

It's beautiful, water color makes it so lifelike

It´s real amzing. I love sparrows. They always remember me of my childhood in Poland... here in Hamburg (Germany) I don´t see them so often. You can find blackbirds everywhere but not sparrows.... I´ll never forget how my father has caught a sparrow in full flight so I could touch him.

I really liked your art. It is so beautiful

the details and everything ...

keep it up!
regards!!

thanks!

wow that's really beautiful!

thank you @kenchung..:)

This is just beautiful way to make a beautiful bird, thanks for sharing!🍀

Lovely painting and I love the way you show the steps. Doing any kind of step-by-step post is such a huge amount of work, and I love to see that. upvoted you

Very beautiful, and thanks for the steps!
This reminds me I had a strange experience with a similar bird. They look pretty similar but not exactly... I don't know what my bird was.

Good job

不得不赞呀

谢谢支持:)

Wow, great work! Glad to meet another artist here ^_^
