Birds of a feather...





Been working on a series on birds, taking the same 'chidiya' form ahead. I find that tetures are really fun but exhausting to do and these are not even as intricate as I would like them to be. These are all 8 inches by 5.5 inches. Poster colours on cartridge paper.

hey,

like the form of the sparrow. And the 1st one from the top looks really nice.Was wondering of you could make it a little brighter. Looks a little dull and dark at the moment.
