Mixed media bird

I felt like drawing another imaginary bird. Earlier this month I watched a quick video from Carla Sonheim called “Crazy Birds Tutorial”.  Carla has great ideas for getting started and this is a fun one. 

I made a few sketches using the ‘crazy birds’ approach and posted the first bird here a few weeks ago.  This second bird is a mixed media piece:

In the sun's light...

 I used some masking, stippling and sgraffito techniques from Diane Culhane’sPaint Your Garden” workshop, too.


  1. Your bird is so graceful and pretty! Thanks for sharing the info. on Carla's bird tutorial. I am trying to improve my bird drawing skills these days.
