The little Blue Bird

After seeing a beautiful photograph of a blue bird taken by Amy Rose of

I asked if I could attempt to create a digital painting. I was given permission and I did a little sketch as seen below with the photograph that Amy Rose took

I did the sketch then decided to save it for later.

After lunch I began playing around with different colours and I quite liked the effect. Don’t ask me why but I suddenly decided that I wanted to add that little blue bird, I’m not sure why but I went with it and below is the end result

I love this little blue bird and I am very grateful to AmyRose for taking the photograph and allowing me to have a go at painting him or her. I will finish my original bird in the traditional way but for now here’s is my interpretation.

This would make a great greeting card.
