I did a lot of painting at Black Cat Ranch, and took a lot of pictures for later reference material. This watercolour puts together some of the animal residents – the horses, of course, and one of the swallows that was nesting under the eave just outside our room. I knew there would be people who would wonder why the bird was so big so I tried to make the background and foreground completely different colour schemes. The horses are very out of focus for me, a sharpness fanatic, but I made up for it with the swallow 🙂
