a birthday present (in progress)


Today is the birthday of someone very special, and this bird is for her! It’s the first in a series of three.

For those of you interested in my process, I started with a pencil sketch and then went over it in black pen:

Goldfinch Beginnings

I then used a mixture of different materials to add color including marker, watercolor pencil, acrylic paint, and white conte crayon- really, whatever I had around:photo-1

And as usual, my helper attempted to drink the paint water and steal my markers:photo
