So a couple of things about this drawing…the bird is in coloured pencils, the background is watercolour, and I have mixed feelings about this mixed media. Why are backgrounds so hard?!?! I’ve gotten in trouble before for my backgrounds, yet leaving a bird hanging in open air makes it feel so unfinished.
Also, now that I look at this bird, its head is way too big for its body. Drat.
My favourite part of this drawing is actually the log the bird is posing on and that was coloured pencil with watercolours on top. Hmm….
Somebody teach me how to do proper backgrounds!!!
