Work in progress; Blue footed Boobies from the Galapagos Islands

Started out in watercolour.

Enjoyed them so much that I decided to try them in acrylic.

But I still have a bit of work to do on these two boys, I'll post them up again when I feel that they're done.I think that the acrylic seems to add a bit of dignity to the guys, in comparison to the waterclour which are quite cartoony. Neither were conscious decisions.

I like the simplicity of the watercolour. I reckon you are a lot like Danielle with your lack of background or context.
