  • More Quirky Birds!

    Carrying on with this week’s Life Book 2013 lesson from Tamara, I got a bit carried away with drawing quirky birds. I drew four instead of two! – oops!!!

    Quirky Birds - Life Book 2013, Week 14

    These are painted on the back of the other four and the whole image folds up like a concertina. Like the others, I created the background using spray inks and stencils, followed by neocolour crayons and acrylic paint and stencils. When it was all dry I covered it in clear gesso then drew the birds using pencil and coloured them using a mixture of acrylic paint, neocolour crayons, Edding 780 paint marker and unipin fine line pens.

    I completely missed out the journalling part of the lesson!! I may add it later, or I may just skip it, I haven’t decided yet. I’ll let you know when I decide… keep watching this space!

    Quirky Birds!

    In this week’s Life Book 2013 lesson from Tamara she taught us how to draw these quirky birds. They were so much fun!

    I haven’t finished the lesson yet, so I’ll post some more pictures when I’m done.
