My second WDE attempt. Hope this is allowed as it bears virtually no resemblance to the photo it's based on!

I've gone back to a style I haven't tried since I was at school - it was lots of fun; I might have started on a theme now.

I used Letraset Promarkers and watercolour (as I realised after I'd started I didn't have a red marker) on A4-size 220g cartridge paper. It took just over 1.5 hours I think.

All comments welcome.

I really like it. Very unique.
So wonderful if you see something in a different way and are able to translate it to paper (or canvas, board, ...)

initially, I thought it is a ribbon design. Then I saw the sparrow. Great job!

I'm so glad you are back !! This is a brilliant take on the reference. You can do whatever you please with the ref - it's mainly for inspiration, and wherever your imagination takes it is fine !! I recall years ago, someone did a bird bath (or stepping stone - sorry, memory fades) and she put colourful pieces of pottery shards into concrete to make the picture ! It was gorgeous too :clap:
