Bird in Bright Colors

This bird was colored with Pentel fine tip markers (water based). The notched oval shapes are tracings around a beautiful Norwegian silver necklace, shown at right, a gift from my sister-in-law.

The background was done with some Bad Markers, and thankfully I have repressed the brand name. It just looked ugly to me - streaky and blotchy. Then, more than 20 years later, I used my Copic markers in similar colors to go back over the background. Now, I'm happy to say, it looks smooth and even. See Bad Marker Disclaimer.
