Curvy exhibition

I'm in the process of drawing two new girls for the Curvy 6 exhibition in Sydney.

Unfortunately, work is extremely busy at the moment (and I mean arriving at 6:30am and leaving at 7:30pm kind of busy) so I've really just been snatching spare moments here and there to work on these.

But I woke up early this morning and had a good run at this one:

I'm a bit stuck on what colour the birds should be. I was almost ready to go for robin red-breast colours (brown with a red chest) when I realised that that's far, far too realistic for my liking! So I'll ponder for a bit longer.

I've also found some frames I'm really happy with.

They're much fancier than my usual ones, but I don't feel like they're overshadowing the work like some of the other heavy frames I've tried.

Anyway, better get back to it. Day's a wastin'!

I'm actually coming over to go to Semi-Permanent in Sydney! Can't wait to see your work in the flesh (so to speak!). I think red would be cute too!

The reds have it! I actually started doing the birds in red a couple of minutes after hitting 'publish' - great minds and all that ;)
