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!

You are so talented. This is so preety. I love to see the progress.
Thank you Sarit 🙂 I’m glad you like it
I like the title of the series, and what it’s inspiring you to create. We need more (strange) purple birds in the world. ♥
Thanks 🙂 Yes, we need more playfulness. You do your bit for that with your poems
Lovely, especially the colour!
Thanks 🙂 I’m glad you do
