I have a collection of these fun little plastic animals,
a carryover from when my daughters were young.
I love them.
So...what happens when we morph these two creatures together?
I like that she looks like she is wearing the bird suit sort of like a barrel.
Perhaps I should add some straps!
The first bit of gouache is applied.
Again, I added shading to anchor the creature to the surface.
Look at the cast shadows beneath or around what you are drawing.
They add a great deal to your work.
I decided to mount the drawing/painting onto another paper
that was overpainted with soy wax resist.
