Artist's Description

Inspired by the beautiful photo of aussiedi I took one whole day to create this!

FEATURED in Sketching and Drawing
22 May 2011.

I dedicate this to Di

I first made a pencil sketch, then I coloured some parts of it with pastel, then used watersoluble pencils and waterpaint to give it more colour and finally I used my Parker pen. I wasn’t satisfied with the background, then decided to cut out the picture, pasted it on white 120gsm paper and add the very interesting info. (to make it look more arty?) Thanks aussiedi, not only for giving me permission to paint your work, but also for helping me to increase my knowledge about Australian birds!
