A Peek Inside my Watercolor Journal, Patagonia, Argentina

Greetings from Patagonia, Argentina!
I have not been able to blog much about my trip because of the lack of internet, sparse, slow or non-existent down in the Patagonia area of Chile and Argentina.  We have been hiking almost every day.  I like to choose the “easy” day hikes because that gets me more time to paint in the afternoons.  I have absolutely loved seeing all the new birds that I have never seen before.  One of my favorites are the long-tailed Meadowlarks that do not seem afraid of me and hang out in flocks singing their beautiful song back and forth to each other.  Here is my painting of one in my watercolor travel journal.  I wanted to have him help frame the landscape scene of the area.  The males have a vibrant red chest.

This meadowlark is so well done, Jacqueline! I love the way you featured it and then created the background with a delightful blend of colors and light. What fun to experience a new variety of birds.

Thanks! I have been playing around with how to break up my page with interesting shapes and that is why I put the meadowlark there :)
