Studio Jardine translates to Studio Garden and is derived from my name
Reneé Charisse Jardine. I started the Studio Jardine Blog to network with anyone interested in my work enough to give me feedback, ask questions, give suggestions or just keep up on what I am creating or where I am selling next. Thanks for the visit.
These are the kind of things that excite me. For the first time ever I viewed Cedar Waxwing Birds in the wild & they happened to be in a tree in our yard. They travel in flocks of about 40, which is how many there seemed to be. They are striking. I took photos and this was the best one I got so I also included a close up off of the web so you can get an idea of how unusual they are with their distinctive black mask and pointed hood. It has been a long time since I painted a Waxwing. It was on a wooden box that I sold years ago. I'll have to paint another this winter.
The first four photos I didn't take with a flash but, should of. Next time I do a visual tutorial I will scan the images so you can get a better idea of the process close up. This butterfly is on canvas prepped with white acrylic paint. I use acrylic paint, watered down to make translucent layers. On my next tutorial I'll have a better explanation of the steps as well.
