Art Pal and a Rooster

Barbara and I have been meeting most Thursdays at Barnes & Noble and arting. What a difference it makes to work on journals with somebody else. Especially somebody as talented as Barbara.

In her last post here she showed some things she worked on while we were together and challenged me to post my rooster which is what I spent the day on.

I started working in this Canson mixed-media journal a couple of months ago and it quickly became my bird book. I've been adding bits and pieces to the cover whenever I find some fun bird thing. This is the book I did my owls in.

My latest is this rooster. Done with RapidoSketch pens.
Doing all those feathers was so relaxing. Besides being with a friend and drinking a hot chai. Can't get much better than that.

Your turn, Barbara.
