A New Spring Bird

I took a break from client work today and played. I pulled the bird art from a coloring page I drew several years ago. Then I “colored” it in by using Photoshop and photos of spring flowers I’ve taken with my iPhone 7 over the last few days.

I copied segments from the flowers and pasted them into the various areas of the bird art. I duplicated the dogwood photo in the background and silhouetted three of the larger flowers in the front so they could overlap the bird. The entire piece was quite time intensive and I really love the finished art.

The bird coloring page was hand drawn using a black Sharpie and black fine tip markers — probably Microns. Photos were taken in my neighborhood and at the local botanical garden. I was inspired by today’s bird prompt in the Daily Creating Facebook Group.

Here are the individual images I combined together.
