Tuesday Afternoon by betta-girl Tuesday Afternoon by betta-girl
Coloured Pencil on Mylar. 16" x 32"

This is another medium that is hard to scan. Mylar, even when the painting is not the shiny side, can be very reflective when scanned. Fortunately, this big painting scanned fine. (it was feather Dancer that I had problems with.)

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-02-13
Tuesday Afternoon is an outstanding example of how ~betta-girl fuses charm and humour with a keen eye for composition and colour. ( Featured by twosilverstars )

Wow, this is amazing! I hate to ask, but does it have anything to do with that song by the Moody Blues?

It's so cool that you got Daily Deviation! I really like the colors in this, and the wings are well done. I also like the expression on her face. This is beautiful.

This reminds me of an old kids' book I used to have about this guy who was taken to an island of birds and started to turn into a bird himself.

Awesome work! Love the colors and the detailed feathering on the birds.
It really has a nice sort of old book illustration feel to it. The font's perfect as well...with the smaller drawings of the birds next to it.

Does this have anything to do with the song of the same title by the Moody Blues? Because I think of a scene done in art nouveau when I hear that song...

This is very nice. I love the stylized look to the birds, with the large talons and beaks. Plus, they all seem to be smiling. :D

Those birds rock something hard. They're cute, and they look huggable, maybe chewable. :plotting:

Nice coloring and shading, too. I'm also really impressed with the angles of the birds. :aww:
