Sketchbook: Parrot On A Branch.

Parrot On a Branch (Watercolor and pencil in Moleskine sketchbook, 5x8").

I took a picture of this heavily opinionated bird at the Charles Paddock Zoo in Templeton.  This sketch is based on that photo.

[UPDATE: 2/16]

I decided to render the branch and add a background.  I painted this in a Moleskine sketchbook and while it does reasonably well with various mediums, there's a point in time where the paper just gives up.  That's the sign to stop.

Watercolor, acrylic ink, walnut ink, gouache, colored pencils, and ball-point pen....
