Charcoal on wood

black cockatoo charcoal After dreaming about birds (maybe because they were so noisy at night…) I took the little challenge to draw a large Australian Cockatoo (120cm by 160cm) on a piece of plywood.

I will use it for my next market backdrop, so for all the Melburnians, look for the big bird at the Arts Centre next Sunday and please come to say hello!

-Let’s them fly-

Hello world, I know this blog has been on a slow motion mode for quite a while, but I have a big project going on and I am trying to enjoy every step of it!

It does not mean that I am not doing anything else…the sewing machine has still been running a long way every month. And because my children love the idea of flying on their own around the world, I needed to help them build their wings.
