this is SO beautiful! I love the colors of the bird, especially on that grey paper. Did you use colored pencils for this piece? We learned how to do heightened drawings in Drawing class last semester, with darker paper and white pencils, which I really loved. Very similar look to this.
One of my all-time favourite colours! Looks beaut. Thanks also for the lovely March desktop calendar, I've been using it on my laptop and it reminds me to look for the whimsical side of life. Keep up the great work.
