Well, I’ve been itching to get back to drawing my second-hand treasures so last night I drew these guys. You may recall my blog post Wax Figures from December 4th, which began a category called “candles I just can’t burn.” These charming little wax birds fall in that category, too. So plump and cute. Tuyen found them in a free pile from a yard sale and knew I would like them. Each bird is about the size of my fist and made of solid black wax. I used a black gel pen and a black water-soluble colored pencil (gone over with a paintbrush dipped in water) on Canson tinted paper. Hmm, let’s see…perhaps something colorful, next?
