  • Quirky Bird Bug!

    Yes, I have definitely got the Quirky Bird Bug – I can’t seem to stop drawing them!

    Solo Bird

    This time I decided to try painting one on material. I primed the material using clear gesso then painted the bird using a mixture of acrylic paint and neocolour crayons exactly the same way I did on the paper. I’m really pleased with how it turned out – I love the way the pattern on the material shows through in places under the paint.

    Drawing birds has kept me from finishing my latest zentangle canvas, but today I finally finished it – number five in the series!

    Butterfly Zentangle

    I decided to try drawing with some Pitt artist pens as the unipin pen nibs were wearing out so quickly! The Pitt pens are lovely and very waterproof, but I think it must be drawing on the canvas – they’re wearing down too! As before, I used the luscious Twinkling H2O’s to add colour to the image.

    Maybe some mixed media paint splashing will cure me of the Quirky Bird Bug – keep watching this space!
