Having a week off works wonders. I've cleaned up my studio and I've had time to experiment a little. This is what I've come up with. A watercolor background on nice colors with my digital drawing in front of it.
This way I can achieve interesting color combinations that would be a great addition to any livingroom or bedroom! I've chosen colors that add something to the bird, and that I just like.
I often use 'analogue' hand sketched elements, or start with pencil and paper. This is another element that adds to the mixed media nature of my work. I am happy with it!
