Star Geese (WIP)

posted in: Art | 0

I did a fast pencil-and-paint sketch on totally the wrong paper for Sketchfest today. (Thank goodness for work breaks!). You can click the pic to see it bigger. The prompt was “it’s full of stars” and this is so much a WIP that it doesn’t even really express what I was seeing in my head. I don’t even know how to do what’s in my head. Nor do I really know where the geese go on the paper. But it tickles my brain!

I’m happy with the wings. The advantage of working in a Bird museum with a small library is lots of handy reference material. My bird-body clue is coming along nicely. Anyway, I hope to make something based on this. In meantime, a sketch, and happy to have it! More random nattering about how it’s made over at Sketchfest proper, if you’re curious.
