Cassowary- Postcards for the Lunch Bag


Artwork-Zebra Zensations Technical Pen, Daniel Smith watercolor and Dr. Martin’s Bleedproof white on a Hahnemühle Cold Press Watercolor Postcard.

Doodlewash prompt: Eggshell

Did you know that the Cassowary is considered to be the world’s most dangerous bird? They have killed humans with their incredibly sharp claws. Their eggs come in various shades of pale green and blue. Once the female lays the eggs, she wanders off and the male takes care of them and then the chicks for up to a year.

This was a BIG bird to fit on a postcard, so I used Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleedproof White to get the highlights on the feathers.

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.

  1. I enjoy all the animal and bird facts you share. I was talking about your dad’s work with mark just yesterday.

  2. Whoa-a! It looks like a cross between a rooster and a dinosaur, and I may just be close on this one! Love it, Sandra!
