Unseen Magic….capturing movement in watercolour

In my workshop yesterday we talked about capturing movement using the medium of watercolour.      Magical hummingbirds are the perfect subject to demonstrate this.

To capture movement, I need to experience it in my own mind and body…and then transport the feeling of energy to paper.

Often it is the very fast, spontaneous images which work best.

These rapid/spontaneous images take less than a minute to complete.     The idea is to transfer the feeling as rapidly as possible onto paper.

My suggestion to artists who wish to produce a more representational/realistic image, is to warm up initially with these rapid sketches…..This will hone observational skills and have a positive impact on finished work.

watercolour – a medium perfect for capturing a moment or essence of my subject.

Later that night when the Little Cat was sleeping in her tree, a beautiful white hummingbird appeared.

White Hummingbird said there was nothing to fear, and that after a terrible storm, all would be clear.

The next morning the Little Cat felt so cold and alone. 

She was beginning to think that she would never find a home of her own.

The snow swirled and whirled and the winds roared and howled.

Little Cat couldn’t even hear Rooster calling through the deep cold snow……..

In her dreams, Little Cat heard White Hummingbird say…….

‘Don’t give into your fear, soon all will be clear.   Follow the light through the storm, and there you will find your new home, so cosy and warm.’

P1140801

As Little Cat came closer to the only light she could see, she realised that it was shining from the cottage across from her tree. 

As Little cat reached the door and raised her paw, she called out as loudly as could be……

Meeeeeooooowwwwwww, I am here, I am here…………..

Sitting next to Little Cat in the tree was a Red Robin as sweet as can be.

Robin told the little Cat that she would never be alone, because hummingbirds were alway near, helping her to find a new home of her own……

She spent most of her time sitting in a tree where she could see a lovely little cottage, which looked as warm as can be…..

When she looked the other way, she could see the golden lights from the Magical Town of Crickadoon.

During the long dark nights, every little noise gave her a fright……..and sometimes she cried.

But something inside of her always knew that there was nothing to fear…..and that help was always near.

One night when the winds began to roar and howl, the Little Cat had a visit from Wise Owl.     Wise Owl told the Little Cat to be patient and trust.

He told her to close her eyes and dream of the beautiful hummingbirds that protect all who live in the Magical Town of Crickadoon.
