Blue Jay

This little guy is enjoying a little winter snack.  He was pretty easy to create in colored pencil, but the blues, especially the light cyan doesn't seem to pick up on the scanner well at all.  The original has a nice light hue of feathers on his tummy that don't really show here. I used 4 different blues on the bird plus white to help blend the various layers to create a more "painterly" effect.
