Today I continued trying my hand at simplified birds. I believe it went a little better today.
Still not perfect, but at least I didn't overwork it too much.
I also tried one with a bird in flight.
What can I say. I obviously have much to learn, but this was quite fun, as it doesn't take as long when you're not paying too much attention to details. Need more practice. Luckily, there are 25 more birds that I need to paint. Woo-hoo! Half way through!
