Following the amazing Eric Carle of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, I thought I would have a go at a more artisan style of illustrating. With no REAL plan in sight I started painting paper and worked from there. The result is this, a whimsical bird who is a touch confused at the flower which seems to be sprouting the same antennae as him. It took around 6 hours and is simply watercolour paints, pva glue and paper. It felt great to be back crafting again- it has been too long.
