It took me 15 minutes just to color the birdie so I divided the video in two parts. Next video will show the detailing of the feathers with acrylic ink. More information on the materials I used to make this can be found here.
Geninne, what a treat! Thank you so much for sharing your process. I really enjoyed "looking over your shoulder". Please tell me the music that you had playing. That was really beautiful as well as your work.
Dear Genine, my daughter and I always read ur blog. Thanks for sharing your wonderful works..Btw, where could wI find your 1st video? My daughter hasn't seen yet. She loves drawing so much, especially manga. Tx.

Yay! Thanks for sharing your works again Geninne.You really have a amazing brush controlling skill.It comes to me a thought,if you plan ahead on which color to use.I often have difficulty choosing the right colors.
Hello Gennine...I love your work...it's "happy" art...I always feel good when I look at it. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise! A question...how do you do your birds....do you create them out of your head or do you look at pictures of birds to get them to look just right? I love birds, but I don't find them easy to draw. Yours are just whimsical and wonderful!
What a lovely and inspiring video. Thank you for sharing your process. I feel blessed to have found your blog and will be regularly reading, and viewing it. Can't wait to see how your little bird turns out.
Hi - maybe I am having problems but I can see the video with you filling in the details with the acrylic white ink. Video 3 just shows me the painting in of the wings......please dying to see how it all comes together with the final touches. Thanks.
Thank you so very much for sharing these! I would really love to know how you are managing to paint the brown of the wings against the orange which is still wet without the colours completely running into each other? Is there a secret I am missing??
Thanks for sharing these, it's wonderful to see you bring that bird to life. One thing I noticed is you don't worry about dipping the brush from one color into another. In fact, you seem to be mixing colors right in the paint boxes :) Since you are creating new colors right there, what happens if you ever needed that original color? May be I am just paranoid about mixing colors in the paint box, I mix in a separate palette...would love to know your thoughts on that.
I especially enjoyed the white ink details video! I have to give that a try, it looked rather watery and I felt I couldn't get that white lines you do. Could be that my paper is too absorbent. Thanks again for sharing these, I loved the music too.
Hi there, thank you for all your videos and blog. Very helpful to review techniques. May I ask what your color pallette is and how you set it up in what order? Also, what brand paints? Thank you, crystal http://crystalscreations-stillwatersgallery.blogspot.com
