Today I did a cute little drawing/painting of a papier-mâché bird that I have been coveting for over a year. He's on my Christmas list once again, I would SO love to make him my first official three dimensional piece of art. I found him on Etsy from an artist who has a shop named Fishstickks (you gotta love that name!). He just makes me all happy when I look at him. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure I know what all my relatives are going together to get me and it's NOT this adorable little fellow. (Pretty sure I'm getting a professional paint palette with all new Daniel Smith watercolors. I've already been told to NOT shop for art supplies, lol.) So, I will continue to admire him now that at least he resides in my sketchbook so if someone purchases him I still have his painting to look lovingly at. I did, in fact, use contour drawing techniques but the paint I added overtop wiped out my lines. Oh well.
Here he is... anyone got a good name for this absolutely adorable fellow with the green striped party hat?
