MSED: Bird a Day #87 Gloomy Fall Day Bird

In an attempt to create a little faster I give you the candle wax drawn bird. I drew the outline of the bird with a white candle on white paper. Not recommended if you are trying to be precise as you cannot see the marks you have made. Any way I drew the bird and then watercolor-ed over to expose the wax outline then used pen over the top. I think the mood of this piece matches the weather outside today.


  1. Now i am in the world of watercolours maybe i can become a bit moor adventurous loike you and have a go painting birds......Love the idea with the wax....xx
