A few years ago, I discovered how much I loved drawing with Sharpie markers, and did a series of abstract drawings, which I hope to turn into large paintings one day.
At the same time, I was creating these abstract drawings, I thought it would be fun to draw some colorful parrots. I had painted parrots in watercolor, but I really like the ease of drawing with markers and the way I can layer color and create a texture of small colored lines.
Here are some birds I drew using the Sharpie markers.

Below: A pair of Eclectus parrots. The male is green, with tinges of red and royal blue, the female is red and blue.
