Hoorah, Hoorah! It’s Draw A Bird Day!

Laura at Create Art Everyday – inspired me to create this bird for today!  Be sure to check out her blog for a list of all the FABULOUS artists who are participating in this monthly, “Draw A Bird” challenge.

So here is my collaged California Quail in my art journal:

I started by doing a quick sketch in pencil:

I then added an assortment of collage papers to create my quail:

CA Quail - step 2 collage papers

I used a variety of papers such as sheet music, postage stamps, a recipe, map, a photo of a fish head, rick rack packaging – to name a few!  Can you find them?

I finished by outlining my quail with a black pen and adding some water soluable wax pastel crayons to the background with a little water:

Have a happy day!  🙂
