Birds of a feather


I have been commissioned a very interesting project, one that appeals to my artist alter ego, and I wish to share it with you as it evolves.  My clients have asked for a painting which later will be transformed into a mosaic and installed at their house in Colorado.  The clients want a bucolic scene, and they have four children whom they wish to include in the composition.  Here's the preliminary sketch:



I have to admit that this is my first time drawing birds, and on closer inspection I think the male pheasant needs some work...

I take it they don't want portraits! It's an exciting project. Maybe take a look at Audobon's watercolors for bird details.

Thanks Paul! That's right, no portraits. And thank you for the suggestion, I will definitely look it up.

The beginnings already look great. I love the frame around it. I'm eager to see what you put in the background, and how you'll reflect the kids personalities in the little birds.
