Little Pink Bird

John Ruskin

Little Pink Bird – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor

You guessed it… This bird was black in the photo reference from Ruby Red Dog at WetCanvas.  I just can’t leave well enough alone.  :D

About John Ruskin

John Ruskin was an English art critic who influenced the attitude of a whole generation toward art and architecture. He was born in 1819 in London. His career began with an essay defending his friend, artist J.M.W. Turner, from critics. His book Modern Painters made Turner popular and gave stature to the Pre-Raphaelite movement. He founded the Cambridge Scool of Art in 1858, now known as the Anglia Ruskin University. Leo Tolstoy called him one of those rare men who think with their heart. When Ruskin inherited wealth, he gave most of the money away. He died in 1900.
