Using antique music manuscript as my paper ground I have created a little collection of angelic watercolour penguin artworks. The music dates from the 1800s and is wonderfully aged with soft yellowy buff tones .
I have used watercolours and also a wash of an beautiful iridescent golden acrylic glaze over the angel wings. This adds another dimension to an otherwise simple painting as the glaze catches the light and changes colour depending where you stand.
Keeping Watch, my vigilant penguins echo the composition of the music background.
I have mounted the painting in a 10" x 8" black mount and framed it in a lovely, simple contemporary wooden frame ready to gift (or to keep!)
