052417- oriental dwarf kingfisher status 

I LOVE how he is turning out. I am debating whether or not to add the eye. There is something here so beautiful – I don’t want that changes into something else. The eye tends to change the chapter and I’m not sure I want to do that.

Also I’m trying to figure out a different way to do bark. I have any idea- it just isn’t all there yet.

I’ve been a terrible blogger- just so exhausted when I get home- so I apologize. So I’ve made some progress on this little bird. I had some errors in my drawing and messed some things up so had to do some reworking- but I am back on track!


031612 – Green Squiggle Bird

{click image for larger version} I am so happy with how this turned out. Check out the larger image to see all the detail that are in his feathers. I love how some of these techniques worked. I also love the messy background with the clean foreground and then with the bird on the squiggle branch. I think I’ll be working on a set of birds – am really into them.

The work itself is  roughly 5″ x 7″and likely will go into an 8″ x 10″ frame. Have no idea of the cost just yet – but this will be  affordable. Email for availability, pricing, payment directions, or for more information.

**For Illustration Friday** I am glad I worked with shades of green for this, which incidentally fit into this week’s theme. I am so happy to have been picked as “Pick of the Week”. Be sure to check out the next bird in the series – the Cardinal squiggle bird.

Thank you!
