Picture #3 is stunning! The use of texture shows the breadth of your artistic skills. I am looking forward to picture #4.

Thank you!


Well, I've made it all the way through one audiobook and have started the next one with this piece! Graphite is a nice change of pace from watercolor and perfect for all the precise little pin feathers

Cranking these art pieces out

I think I'm calling #3 good! It was quite different than my normal style and fun to do.


I believe #4 is done now, too. Maybe a few very minor changes to help sharpen little chick bodies, but I'm pleased with it. Without futher ado, "Growing Pains." I think the next one or two will be a bit more fun and whimsical.

Thank you! This picture is actually of Izzy, my hen from last year's clutch. It was inspired by some certain pictures I had taken of her and her 5 crazy chicks. I'm kind of trying to feature each special bird in one of my art pieces

Progress from tonight! Wow, went from posting twice a month to about twice a day. The plan was to update no more than once a day, but I never know what time I'll get to put in on art.

This piece is going to have a white background with a light sprinkling of paint to add a bit of colorful character. Reference picture is of Echo, but I think the painted bird will be of Hermes.

Beautiful Katie! You’re so good at doing the feather texture to look like realistic feathers. That’s so tedious and takes a lot of patience I’m sure!

Awe, you're so sweet! And, you know, once you get the technique down it doesn't take so long to do the feathers. I'll admit the chicks' pin feathers took some time and patience

Alright, I believe these last two conclude my budgie-themed portfolio. I've entertained the thought of making it a general bird theme so I could submit the quail pieces I did earlier in the running. So another bird painting may be making an appearance to tie it all together. I have some previous pieces that I may consider as well. I'm going to have another artist fully critique and weigh in which 8 I should choose for this portfolio. Then it's on to the horse-themed!

Here's the finished product...thinking of calling it "Feather Dusting" or something. That was the idea of the feather-light sprinkles of paint and then, of course, the feather in the beak. Featuring chubby baby Hermes





For this final piece, I wanted to do something abstract. Inspired by a candled budgie egg!

Masking fluid (my favorite)


Started to have the look of a galaxy so tried to continue that theme...you'll see the veins later look a bit like a comet. The fun thing with abstract is it's up to the individual to interpret what they're seeing!


Finished background...


Some of my favorite watercolor colors



Finished!




The portfolio also allows photographs to be submitted if they tie into the theme, so I've done some very basic editing on one of my favorite budgie photos! It will be sepia, but if the artist likes the foundation, I'll be doing some serious editing beyond this on it!

I like the feather-duster picture, and such a clever name! As StarlingWings said, the photo is truly amazing!
