This Young Magpie in Purple is the first in a series of Strange Birds. They’re regular birds painted in loose watercolour and fine-liner, where I’ve changed the colour and added some patterns.
I’ve been drawing birds for a long time, and I wanted to do something fun with them, so I decided to change how they look. I have 15 birds planned for this series and I have them planned as to what kinds of birds I’ll do but not what I’ll do for each bird, so it’ll be a surprise for both you and me.
If you like the bird, please share it!
