Painting The Wood Stork In The Morning Light – I made several mistakes in the past few months while painting the wood stork. The original pencil drawing was not correctly drawn. I embossed a carbon copy of the original drawing onto the finished background. Then, I painted a white base coat onto the embossed drawing of the wood stork. It was after I added the white base coat that I could see that the wood stork was not accurately drawn. The bird I had drawn looked more like a seagull than a wood stork. I repainted the background, then correctly drew another wood stork. I carbon copied it down on the new background and painted another white base coat. I added the shadow colors and the highlight colors. The shadow colors comprised of white, cyan with a little bit of black and red making it a light blueish violet. The light consisted of yellow and white and another color which was a yellowy orange.
