Red-Lored Amazon Parrot and Barred Owl: Water Color over Ink

Two drawings I did recently for some presentations.  The ink drawings were sketched, then scanned and printed out in smaller versions which I then water colored for the final product (which allows me to try again if I mess up the coloring).  I really like the final look of water-color over ink, and scanning and printing copies of the ink drawing lets you try out a variety of color options without losing the original!

Budgerigar (Parakeet)

A budgerigar I drew for a Thank You card.  Hoping to eventually do a series of pet birds similar to my song bird drawings
