progress on ‘birds we love to hate’

 

And now presenting…  current versions of the first three species in this series! These are all small little drawings, graphite and colored pencil on film. I’ll likely stick with this small format and mixed media for the time being. But I’m thinking that if the idea is to show how gorgeous these birds can be, maybe a larger format is in order at some point.. perhaps big, juicy watercolors?

The list of species has now grown to include Turkey Vultures, Chickens (Bantam roosters in particular), Brewer’s Blackbirds, various Jays, Geese, and Woodpeckers. It is so interesting to learn what birds people really hate! And bird nerd that I am, I find all of them stunningly beautiful. This project just gets more interesting all the time.
