MSED: Bird a Day #72 - M is for Mourning Dove

I had big plans of doing the whole alphabet with this technique but I'm not liking the dark look of the transfer, and man, what a pain to do when I'm not crazy about the result. It just seams kind of muddy. I need to find some actual transfer paper, or maybe a different medium. Has anybody else had success with this technique?
ink jet transfer, watercolor, pen on watercolor paper


  1. I love the idea of a whole bird alphabet. And I'm still so impressed with your artistic skills! To me it doesn't look muddy, but that's just me. And sorry, have no transfer knowledge. I think this is beautiful!

  2. Thank you!
    If I do make a bird alphabet I will be using a different technique. Unless I find some transfer paper.
