Cockatiel Cocktail is in the mix!

This morning I've been working on my first design for my Cockatiel series of art. My first bird note card set is a compilation of several different breeds, mostly portrait style of art. For the cockatiel series, I've decided to do something a bit more entertaining and cute - the birds are more "in action"...doing something of some sort. The first painting I'll be doing is a cockatiel sitting on the edge of a martini glass, which will be filled with red liquid and complimentary fruit. I've been working on the initial sketch for the design this morning and I think this will turn out very cute!

I'm not sure how many 'tiels I'll do in the series....Birds of a Feather Collection I has 5 birds, making 10 note cards (2 of each design). I'll either do 5 Cockatiel designs and the same size note card set, or I'll do 2 designs, 5 of each in the set, or 3-4 designs and perhaps make a set of 12. I'll decide after I see how difficult this first painting is! I'm thinking it will be more attractive to have 5 designs and make a pack of 10 as I did with the other set. This set will be called "Cockatiel Cocktail", meaning it will contain a "cocktail" of cockatiel art.

The Dodge truck painting is coming along very well too! I'll be working on more of it after I get back from my early morning grocery store adventure.
