I have drawn more birdies and I thought it would be a shame not to share them. (I hope you enjoy them as much as I do :))
Also it’s time for ‘Glue It Tuesday’ (aimee is hosting! go check out her blog…) and so I used one of my birdies for a postcard again (which will also be part of my ICAD collection)
Since pictures speak more than a million words, here you go:
For all the birds I drew in the past few days I used tea filters as ‘canvas’.
Very very delicate – I had to be careful not to rip the material as I sketched the birds (with pencil) and colored them with watercolor pencils.
I really can’t wait to go buy some artist’s watercolors – oh my birds will be even more colorful!!! 🙂
I outlined the birds with a ZIG 005 pen, added a little white reflection to their eyes and then went over the watercolor penciled areas with a damp brush…
I can’t make up my mind – I like both – the more realistic coloring and the fantasy colors 🙂
How about you?!
and last but not least, the ‘Rotkehlchen’ (that’s the German name for this cute bird)
on a postcard
(well, actually it’s an index card – 4×6)
[watercolor background, paper napkin for the ground, washi tape on the sides,
the bird cut out and the postage, stamp and writing are digital brushes]
…not sure if I’ll ever send this card – I love it so much 🙂
BTW – I’m too relieved to not share this: My biopsies results came back healthy!!!
(every other year or so doctors decide it’s better to check than to risk another malignant find)
That makes 12 years past cancer diagnosis. Happy day!!! 🙂
I truly hope you’re having a fantastic day too!
Thank you so much for stopping by.
