Blue Budgerigar

I was asked to paint a budgie for my grandparents as it is their diamond wedding anniversary and they own a pet blue budgie named Joey.

I did something a little different with my painting to pattern the darker blue areas. I did this by pressing into and shaping cling film whilst it lay on the wet watercolour pigment and I really like the effect after it had dried!

This budgie was made from inks, watercolour, white pen, salt and sugar.
