Mixed Media Monday – Marsh Wren, Bird # 32 of 100

Here is another experiment with mixed media. I wanted to get a deep rich green for the background of this little marsh wren, but wasn’t getting the effects I desired with watercolour. Instead of using acrylics this time to enhance the background, I went for coloured pencil. I found I couldn’t stop myself and added them to the bird also! So this little guy isn’t as loose as I had wanted him to be, but I think he’s cute anyway. You can find him in my Etsy shop HERE, or leave a comment below if you are interested in purchasing this little fellow.
