"Three little birds right by your doorstep"...I found a reference photo of three birds on a branch on the internet and thought I could add a 4th one to tell a story. I wonder what birds would think of, if an Angry Bird happened to be in front of them. I pulled an all nighter for this piece. It took me about 4-5 hours to complete from initial sketch to final touches.

This was the first color study I did after. Testing colors to see how they would look like together as well as the lights and darks. The background seemed to light for me and the different colored birds just wasn't working.

 This was the second color study. I changed the source of light to come from screen right shining from above and I kept the birds more neutral in color.
A color study I did of just the bird. I wanted to see what a "halo" effect would look like around the bird.

This is the final piece that I scanned and brought into Photoshop to add the text. This was used in a poster to promote a watercolor workshop that I facilitated.
