I love Jodi Ohl's artwork! Here is my version of her lesson on painting whimsical birds. I don't know why I picked a rooster as my whimsical bird?? But here he is in all his glory. Candy corn came to mind, and I eventually turned them into flowers or maybe growing candy corn is Mr. Rooster's hobby? I certainly like all the colors they come in now.
Products I used. Ampersand Clayboard sealed with Clear Gesso. Marks All pencils, Neocolor II Watercolor Crayons, Liquitex Paint Pens, Jet markers in black and white. I tried some Gelatos, but that didn't work either. I had some trouble with getting any pencil to write on my surface, but the markers did the trick. I did use the fixative at the end, since I had attempted mark making in some areas. I plan to eventually spray with a gloss finish, too.
