I can’t stay away from the birds! This time I sketched this little Chaffinch (Bofink in Swedish, Buchfink in German).
I sketched him with pencil on a sheet of regular paper with text about Chaffinches. Colored him with watercolor pencils and a fine liner and white ink (Faber-Castell Art Pen & Uni-ball Signo Ink Pen -white).
I cut him out and almost mounted (glued! Happy GIT everyone who participates! :)) him on what will be a mail art piece (an index card, that I printed/painted with acrylic paint, doodled, stamped (recycled plastic packaging)). As I couldn’t decide if I liked the background for him, I played with the background color in Photoshop. I think I’ll add something underneath the bird in the paper collage, to make him more visible…
The first picture is the paper collage (I added some yellow and green to the background meanwhile) and the second is the digital collage.
Once the mail art is done, I’ll update the picture 🙂
As always, thank you all so very much for your time to read this post and your kind comments. It makes my day to see that you’ve been here 🙂
