Freshly Made Sketches: Bird-Day Wishes

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Judy.

I needed a birthday card for a friend this week.  Squares weren't quite right.  I played around with leaves but as much as I love autumn leaves, somehow falling leaves didn't see right for this birthday!!  I ended up with these charming little birds!

FMS Bird-Day

I was really struggling with colors.  I had blue birds and yellow birds and green birds and more.  They all seemed to springy.  Then I thought I could make use of the cute little patterns for their bellies and keep those the focus.  So I just added splashes of color and didn't worry about coloring the birds.  I brushed a bit of soft blue behind them to help them pop.

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at FMS!!
