day fifty-eight - tanager

naming it vague tonight because i foolishly mis-coloured this here GREEN-headed tanager. ahem...

blue's a type of green. ask anyone (make sure they're colourblind, or just normal blind). but in your FACE fate, because tanager's are actually songbirds. how fortuitous my sketchbook is!

i never thought i'd say this but i need brighter poscas... because this is what tanagers actually look like. eye-raping. in a good way. much like that chalk/neon affect neil taught us about on art attack. mark my words i will chalk a tanager one day.

and to think this time last year i didn't even know such amazing birds existed!
