Colorful Thrasher

I think I should call this one a mixed media color drop bird. I sketched him out and started dropping in the color. He got to a point where he might have been a "Trasher Thrasher" but as with the flowers, never judge a little birdie before it's time. You know my motto, "When all else fails, punchanella!" And I could add to that, "script stamps". Anyway, I think he turned out ok although I love the simplicity of this one.

As always love seeing how you develop a piece, this one is beautiful as is the simpler one.
