I've been spending the week drawing snails - in particular grumpy snails, so yesterday when the 'slippery little suckers' all became a bit too much I reached for the bling.
This bird seriously dazzles - the scan doesn't quite do justice to the glimmer and glamour. I'm afraid I can't stake much claim to the originality of the look of this particular Phoenix though. I copied the drawing from a book (I'm also learning how to draw fantastical creatures as well as molluscs!). However, the colour and pattern is all me - what a burst of sunshine on (another) cloudy day!
I'm once again joining in with Summer of Colour - this week it's hot pink and orange. Very sherbet dib dab!
