Nelson-Atkins Shuttlecock


It was super fun to paint an iconic shuttlecock by the pool at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art!! Even better- I painted this while enjoying a hot Matcha Latte in their coffee shop!  Arriving early to meet artist friends here, I decided to paint this first thing!  I've enjoyed seeing these shuttlecocks on the lawn since I was a child - and it's high time I sketch them!  With ink and watercolor, I capture the scene.  I often self edit the scene as I work, not even conscious that I do it.  I left out an entire building on this - and didn't even realize it until I looked at this photo, lol.  Funny how differently my mind sees things sometimes!  Painting number 4401 in 4401 days.
