Lilac-Breasted Roller


Today, my hubby took a Lilac Breasted Roller in his lunchbag.

The Doodlewash prompt for April 8 is birds. I’ve never seen a Lilac Roller in real life but I love to paint them. They have eight colors in their plumage – green white, black, yellow, turquoise, dark blue, reddish brown and lilac. How could you not love painting a bird like that?

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
