Watercoloring loose birds

 This week Kia has chosen this video on 5 little birds from Diane Antone studio seen here on YouTube

 I did watch the whole video then started the simple sketch which turned into 3 birds from me.

Although I have seen pink birds on pinterest it's not really something that comes easily to mind to me so I decided to just go bright, with green, yellow blue for the colors. the branch got a little thick at the end and that was an Oops so. 

Second layers of paint. 

a little more details added to the faces.

some splatters and more twiggy looking to the branch which was still a little off so, more paint followed over the days after that until I came home from work this afternoon and so this is where I stopped.

I do like the curve to the main branch but, the thickness of it at the end still bugs me and adding all the extra branches really didn't help. I also decided to add some white gel pen dots to the eyes which were a little big for the scale of their eyes and a little bit of darker shades of the paints on the top of the heads and sides of the birds bodies. Is it still loose? I don't know. If I had to do it again I would seriously try for a skinnier branch. That's about it from me, If you'd like to play along with us you can find this challenge here at Splitcoaststampers to do so. Thanks for stopping by.
