The Guira Guira

#doodlewashMarch2022: Cuckoo.

Did you know that up to ten Guira Cuckoo females may lay over 25 eggs in the same communal nests? There are always lots of broken eggs underneath though – they’ll kick out the eggs of others if they can.

Here’s a situtation where I used fabulous products but didn’t achieve what I wanted. The Kuretake brush pen have such intense color, and the Bamboo paper is more absorbent than most of the papers I use, so things got much darker, much quicker than I expected. Not necessarily a bad thing – just not what I was going for.

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.
