Changing things up in your life and living somewhere else for a while can really provide new ideas for inspiration. I will be the first to admit that Australia was beyond a tame fountain of possibilities; it was like a nonstop, raging waterfall of images and ideas I wanted to capture and recreate! One of the first things that struck me was the exotic birds. This cockatoo is just a start of a little taste of down under.
This sketch took me a lot longer than I anticipated. I always think working with pencil is so detail oriented and time consuming; it never receives the credit it deserves. I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday!
