Lilac Bellied Birdie


This is the opposite of the rainy owl from yesterday. It's a sunny tropical bird with a tropical flower. I must be homesick for sandy beaches and the stillness in the air that only comes from places with constant sun. 

Wanting my painting to have more detail and definition, I reintroduced the use of pen and ink--an old favorite of mine. I like combining drawing and painting qualities into one composition.

  1. This bird has a wary look in his eye. I like him! That's an awesome flower, too.
    Sounds like Ryder is a budding artist; that's very cool! Maybe he'll have his own blog in a few years....
