audubon book

i make my audubon paintings & drawings from a really old, cheap edition of audubon's birds of north america.

while working on the paintings i usually mess around in the book too.
on the right is the page of cardinals. i pushed some leftover paint onto the page the other morning before cleaning up.

i really like the pastel french blue with the red bird.
eventually, i imagine, the book will be something kinda special - all full of altered illustrations.
