I decided to use a discarded book to sketch in. I hope this is the right place to post these.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/02-Jul-2014/143438-Palomino_copy.jpg
Watercolour on old book page.

These are great! I want to hurry and try watercolors but I need more foundation work.

Great bird head.

Chewy, just get the watercolors out and experiment. Best way to learn what works and what doesn't. Just be mindful of what you are doing so you know what you learned in the process.

Continuing in the bird portrait line, this hornbill caught my eye. Pen, ink and watercolour.

Oh wow! Hornbill and cassowary are incredible. Love the people too, the juju man and the man with face paint are both so well rendered. Cool fish too. This book is turning out brilliant! I love them all and I'm in awe of your watercolor skills, spectacular watercolor and pen works.
