These are drawn from reference photos at http://secondchancebirdrescue.com/index.html which is a local bird rescue. Here is Tike:



And here she is with her squawking buddies:

Lionus [Severe Macaw]: http://secondchancebirdrescue.com/images/secondchancebr064.jpg
Mango [Fischer Lovebird]: http://secondchancebirdrescue.com/images/secondchancebr114.jpg
All of these birds are Sanctuary birds, meaning that they'll be staying at Second Chance forever. Second Chance does amazing work with their avian rescues. I'm putting together a donation for them right now Grin

Also, here are some wild birds that I did a while ago while screwing around with watercolors.



I love birds. They are so expressive! And sooo loud!
Please let me know what you think!

I like the second "older" ones even more than the first pics in the post. They have a style of their own. Like beautiful illustrations from a childrens book.

Pretty! Birds are very expressive. My oboe teacher is a bird watcher, so I often learn new things about them at my lessons. I think he would appreciate your art Smiley

I LOVE personal swaps! If you see something I made that you like, and have anything fun or interesting or silly, tell me.
