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:
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! 🙂
