Arrow New Project; Birds From A To Z

This Project welcomes artwork - drawings/paintings etc - on Birds from the Letter A right through to the letter Z


So to start the Project, post paintings/drawings of bird's breeds beginning with the Letter A, then we can work our way down each letter of the Alphabet e.g.

A.....African Grey Parrot or Australian Emu or any other bird which begins with the letter A


When we finish with the letter A we will then move on to the letter B and so forth.


This is meant to be a fun Project, members can enter whenever we feel like it, as it will stay open for some time. But do follow the Alphabet with a bird breed A then going on to B, then C etc. You can post as many paintings on the one letter as you wish, but when someone changes to another letter, that's the bird breed with that letter that we will post to.
We haven't had a Bird Projects for some time, so I hope you will all enjoy this one.

Re: New Project; Birds From A To Z

Oh!!! I'll have to take part in this, my parents (my step-dad in particular) are very keen bird photographers, they've probably got enough photos for me to do the whole alphabet

Yes, that housework is NEVER going to get done

Re: New Project; Birds From A To Z

Wow Christel - many thanks for your first post in this new Project!
A wonderful painting for "A" of an African Fish Eagle! Ive never heard of an African Fish Eagle, so that's a new bird for me - well done! I'm hoping that this new Project will bring out some new birds that lots of us dont know of, so that is already beginning....so exciting!
Thank you for beginning posting to this new Project.

Re: New Project; Birds From A To Z

Oh wow! I better start my painting ready for 'Z', this is happening faster than I can paint

Christel - Great action-painting of the African Fish Eagle
Chammi - I just love the charisma of your pen and wash paintings, this one feels like his beady eye is on me

Re: New Project; Birds From A To Z

Chammi - Already a bird I've never heard of! Is he South African? I'm looking forward to meeting all these birds I didn't know of.
Beautiful work Chammi, he looks extremely regal!

Lovely cardinals! Great chickadee, sparrow and ducks! The chipping sparrow is new to me.
Viv - the bateleur is a Southern Africa bird which measures 55-70cm.
