Unbalanced


This weeks illustration friday topic was 'Unbalanced'.

I went with the first thing that came to mind just so I could fit in the bowerbirds again. I'm really enjoying just painting and adding in detail later, losing obvious outlines. My only problem is being able to do it on a dark background. I'd like to be able to have the crispness and contrast of something like this -


But I fear he uses more than watercolours.

the warm colors and the perspective are just lovely—the light background works nicely!

What a twist to the generic see-saw! I love the simple form of the birds!
