Dance with me by Solinni Dance with me by Solinni
House Sparrow
Passer domesticus

Thank you for all of your suggestions, I'll keep them in my mind : )

I'm trying out new paper, I have this old East German song book called "Ringsum erwachen Lieder". It's from year 1956, so the songs are pretty interesting... I got it last spring from our schools attic, it looked really worn out and it had suffered some water damage too, but I took it anyway. The paper really isn't that nice to paint on, it's quite porous.


Before anyone asks, I don't know any German and I don't know how to read notes. The page was selected randomly and the song (which by the way is called "Beherzigung") isn't related to the painting any way.

Watercolours.

I can read music and I was born the year that sheet was printed :granny:  And I'm teaching myself German.  What I could *never* do is draw beautiful birds like that.  Beautiful work :iconloveloveplz:

really nice image!  this had to be very hard to paint with watercolours on the music paper, though.

It's very nice.

The translation to english however is- heeding. To take heed.

Great painting, great idea to paint on the music, birds quite life-like, I love it!! Well, it's in D Major and looks pretty easy to play on the piano but I can't see all the notes. :D
Again, love it!!! :iconlovesplatplz:

Tämä on minun lempparini näistä koska nuotit vaan sopivat niin hyvin varpuspariskunnan taustaksi, kuulen kuinka visertävät. Hienolta näyttää kanssa tuo, miten valkoiset mahat on saatu untuvaiseksi eri väreillä.
