This is one of the pages from my ebook of Folk Art Birds Coloring Pages. I first drew this bird in pencil, then went over it in pen. I scanned it into the computer so that I could use the black and white line drawing for my coloring book. Then I printed it at a light opacity, so that I could go over the lines with colored pencils. I'm really happy with how it turned out. It was really detailed so it took a long time to color!

Thank you Susanne!  Oh, I do make mistakes here and there, but I just try to find a creative way to incorporate the mistake into the piece.  Or I do my best to erase it!  :)
