Birds of Maharashtra

Completed corporate campaign

When I was working on the project Songbirds I maintained a journal of all the birds I was learning about. These were notes and drawings of birds whose appearances, habitats and idiosyncrasies I planned to use in the making of the book 'Little red whiskers, where are you?'. Eventually I decided to paint these drawings as the corporate client SKYi wished to use them to make postcards. This project is an outcome of that journal keeping.

The illustrations have been made with gouache, watercolours and photoinks on watercolour paper.
