Bird town by Amy Sue Stirland

Bird town
by Amy Sue Stirland

Prompt: the birds are back in town
prompted by: Kir Talmage, during Sketch Fest #97 (April 2018)

This artist has posted at least one finished version of this piece!

The whole time I’m drawing this I have Thin Lizzy’s “The boys are back in town” running through my head and that is what the bird on top of the house is singing. Thank heavens the birds outside my window don’t have electric guitars. I’m pretty sure this one is going to be gouache, but im also considering pieced paper mixed media.

     Amy Sue Stirland replied to this: I took inspiration for rounder birds from Doodle Date on YouTube, so I’m glad I could share. I would love to see rounder bird beads when you get them done,

Kir Talmage says: Did you wind up doing this in pieced paper? That would be amazing. That lower left bird is adorable. ~ Reply?

     Amy Sue Stirland replied to this: I made the pattern pieces for it, but haven’t yet cut them out. I’m struggling with indecision on how cutesy I want this to be.
