Bird Sketches

I have moved on from peacock feathers now into a more general area of garden birds- more specifically, English garden birds. I have a vague idea of printing the 'drab coloured' birds in the vivid colours of parrots and birds of paradise etc.
This of course, requires more drawing, and I thought you might like to see some of my sketches.

Some of them came up a bit funny in the scanner so I apologise for the random black bits down the sides and so on. I am particularly proud of my blue jay though, and the sparrow (bottom image) is becoming quite a favourite too.

My work space is looking a little bit like a wilderness with lots and lots of drawings of birds, moodboards, feathers etc. All quite exciting really. (Don't be alarmed by the scary cygnet drawing at the bottom of the photo)
