T.A.C.O Tuesday | For The Birds

T.A.C.O Tuesday | For The Birds

This week's T.A.C.O. Tuesday is inspired by Tamara Laporte @ Willowing Arts and her "quirky birds". 

I've been really grooving on Tamara of Willowing Arts lately, her personal brand of whimsy really resonates. I've been working with her LifeBook 2016 course and one of them is all about her "quirky birds", as she calls them. Anyhow, the course is fabulous (full review coming soon!) and you're looking at my first attempt at one of her whimsical birds. 

My bird is also inspired by the youngest of the limh girl children-- And of course she could be found splashing in puddles while wearing a cat-eared winter hat and carrying a magic wand! When I brought her the finished sketch she assured me that I had captured her essence well. 

So I thought I would pass on the bird-like inspiration and present this fairly straightforward T.A.C.O. Tuesday.

Draw a bird, and then color it if color pleases you.  

Make it quirky, or lifelike, or perhaps prehistoric-- pterodactyl, anyone??

 

And, as always, don't forget to share your creations with us on our Facebook page!
