In the above image, you can see the Rare White Sparrow artwork, at the top right of this newsletter. Thank you to Dawn Duty of View of a Pixie - Photography for the image of that rare bird, and your permission for me to paint it.
There is an art demonstration video of the pastel painting over watercolour for FREE viewing in Ryn Shell's YouTube channel, Ryn Shell Facebook Page or on my website, A Brush with Nature Studio
The second artwork, in the above image, is a watercolour, watercolour pencil and pen painting of the Wompoo Fruit Dove in a rural garden.
My thanks to author Margaret Lake for the foreground flower photo and wildlife photographer Philip Woodhouse for photos I used as reference in creating this work.
I'm always delighted to welcome new subscribers to Ryn Shell's YouTube channel and like and comment on videos. I have a special Ryn Shell YouTube Channel Supporter's Facebook Page where we can chat about non-commercial (it is spam free site,) creativity.

There is always one who pushes the boundaries, and it's happening often enough for me to need to say this:
Our home and our address is private—please don't try to find me to visit. The PO box number is in town, and we don't go to town often. Contact with us is best done through social media or if you are our valued friend, client or student, by email. We cannot have visitors, aside from family, to our private home. My husband Reg and I are seniors, retired from our public presence, art exhibiting life.
I'll go out of my way to strive to assist any of my online students. I will answer as many of your questions, and prepare art demonstration tutorials to meet your needs, as best as I can, in the time I can spare. I'm keen to pay it forward.
Very best wishes from artist-author, and creative coach.
