Really enjoying painting the birds this year. They aren’t as whimsical as last year’s. Created digitally using watercolour and pencil.
I created many birds this past February as a personal drawing challenge. Now they can be enjoyed by others in 2017. They may branch out to home decor pillows as well.
Since I illustrated my bird collection in February of this year, I have been wondering what to create with all the colourful images. So… a 2017 calendar seemed to fit. I will be taking pre-orders starting in October and selling the calendars at Beyond Craft Show and Sale 2016 in November.
I began my bird drawing challenge with a whimsical drawing of an owl and I will finish with a more realistic version of an owl. He looks very wise. I see things a little differently now.
This month I challenged myself to draw 29 birds. It seems that my more realistic birds are a hit. Here are a few of my favourites from this month. I have a week left. I might miss these birds.
