IF: Leap



Baby birds leap from their branches in a brave attempt to learn how to fly. (There may be further leaping to follow once the cat shakes off his surprise!)

Started this little scene on Thursday night, so just had to work it up for this Fridays' theme. I was also determined to add colour (which I find a challenge) and having seen a number of fantastic posts recently that have used colour pencils I thought I would have a go here.

This is really cute! I like the multiple positions of the birds and the expression on the cat's face. I also think colored pencil is a good way for you to add color- it keeps that nice sketchy quality that you have.

I like what you have done with the colour. It is difficult to start to add colour when you are used to working without it, but once you start (which you have) there will be no stopping you! Well done,lovely illo.

Very cute. I wonder if the kitty was surprised because the baby birds took their leap before he could?:0)

Colored pencil is so much fun to work with. One of my favorites to work with. Thank you for your lovely comment as well.

I like how the birds looks as if they are falling like leaves, and also how the cat's tail is raised in surprise. Very cute drawing, the color pencils were a good choice!

Really adorable, Bee, birds and kittie alike. I love how the birds are all over the place, on their first attempt at flying!
I know what you mean about being hesitant about adding color, but you did a great job. And one thing I'm learning is that the more we do it, the easier it becomes. :-)

This is great Bee. Your style is very friendly, and the coloured pencil gives the piece a soothing quality. Keep up the good work, and thanks so much for your comments.
