Draw a Bird Day | Day 8 World Watercolor Month

I was in the middle of painting todays piece when I remembered that today was Draw a Bird day. I hadn’t joined in before since 1. I kind of fear drawing animals (I have no idea why when I love animals to bits) and 2. its always something I hear about a day or two too late. So this time around I had a nice early reminder and took the opportunity to face a challenge. What’s World watercolor Month if not for challenging yourself while having fun right?

I took the fun route and painted in an illustrative style and decided to try the simplest way possible and came up with this little method.

I tried another and then, Β I couldn’t stop – a couple birds later I had filled the little page with these

This was a super fun challenge indeed! I’m glad I gave it a go. ^_^

  1. My favourite is the pink flying one. I usually miss it too – I suddenly see all these bird drawings on the 10th and think “doh!” but was paying attention this month πŸ™‚

  2. Welcome to the bird party, Sissh! I love your feathered friends, especially the one in flight (with the red belly). Also, this fulfills our little challenge of the animal/sand dollar, so it is a double win! 😘
