Bird Of Many Colors

I love to draw birds and I had fun designing this Bird Of Many Colors. Yep, this isn't the type of bird you will see flying around your neighborhood or at your neighborhood pet store. However, after I framed it, I really liked the way it looks hanging on my wall. I drew it like most of my birds, with a No.2 pencil, then traced over it with a gel pen in preparation for painting it with my computer. It took me much more time to paint it than to draw it. Having to drop paint in each separate square, dot, circle or stripe takes time, most definitely ... but it was fun deciding what computer paint to use and being able to select different techniques to brighten, darken and intensify how I wanted it to look. This Bird Of Many Colors is my illustration of how exotic and whimsical birds would look if I was ever asked to dress one up. :)
