Kookie Birds





This is a sketch of my next digital artwork for Etsy. It is called Waiting for the Dawn II. Waiting for the Dawn (original) can be found here on my website. Hopefully this will be completed in a few days but I will probably make some adjustments to the bird. The tail looks a bit wonky to me.


Also posted are some of the "kookie" birds from my sketch book. I love drawing odd and interesting and often bizarre birds, and there is no doubt that these are VERY odd indeed. Whether these will ever find their way into a finished artwork remains to be seen.......perhaps if they are very well behaved.

Wow! Your work is wonderful. Whenever I look at the work of someone from the UK or Australia you know it's going to be fabulous and unique. I think these areas focus more on art in school than in the US... either that or all of the talented folks are born there. Amazes me sometimes.

Thanks very much Helen but funnily enough I always think the same thing of artists and craftspeople in the states.

Thanks Mary. I love looking at other peoples' sketches too and seeing how they compare with the finished product.
