10.25x9 mixed media on paper done today of a common street bird, the unglamorous pigeon.  To me they are colorful and entertaining and certainly worth painting now and then.  Ink sketch was done as seen in the image below using black Tombow brush pen nib.  The paper was stamped months ago with bubble wrap I had brushed watercolor over and let run and drip.  Yellow areas were done using Montana acrylic marker 15mm wide tip; the markers are new art supplies I just got.  They have a nice thin even mix of paint and dry immediately.  Black horizontal lines were made using the Tombow's brush end for some vivid contrast.  Metallic pink and blue hues were enhanced and emboldened.
