Beautiful Birds in Winter

Yes, Macaws can thrive in winter if they are acclimated to it.
How amazing would it be to see with the snow all around?

I love coloring birds.
Although I don't believe I've ever combined a DT Challenge, this one went perfect together.
 MiC challenge is "Feathers"
Using one of the gorgeous new Beautiful Birds

Colored up with Copics
R39, 17, 14
B18, 16, 14
Edges were distressed and Inked then frantage added.
Adding some "Winter" Pine Cones with frantage to keep in theme of our challenge at SRTC.
I also added some Maple Branch.
I know, leaves in Winter?
Well, we've just returned from AZ and I promise they have full leaved trees.
On the leave, I've drawn in some veining then inked the edges for shadow.
Finally adding some gesso with a brush to add some snow.
I also added a bit of MiC flourish called Floral Swirls.
