‘Burly Bird’ mixed media

I wanted to share a finished piece of mixed media that I initially made a while back, but I added some more details to it recently in the form of black and white gel pen details. I LOVE contrast and for me, black and white pens are the perfect way to achieve this.

I created this piece with a selection of watercolours, colour pencils, black and white ink/gel pens. I started by sketching out the bird and butterfly and drew over my lines with a fine black ink pen.

Then I coloured in my design with coloured pencils before creating the background with watercolour and coarse sea salt (to add some texture and interest). Lastly when all was dry, I added some details with black & white gel pens.

I hope this brightens up your day!
