Each one of these has a little design on them for kids to paint like coloring in a coloring book.
I just gesso over the design and use them as I wish.
Well..... today I watched a video on Youtube by Sarah Brighton of gypsysoulcreations and was inspired to make a bird of my own. I have been making little whimsical birds for quite awhile now, but wanted to do one inspired by her bird doodles. Check out her video below:
And here is what I came up with:
I gessoed the canvas and then added a strip of vintage sheet music. then I penciled in the drawing of the bird. I added watercolor to the sheet music and background and then painted the bird itself in acrylics. For a final little bit of decoration, I added some shiny bits to the bird's plumes.
I had fun with this. It was nice to just play around with a doodle and not take it so seriously.
