Birds

I made an accordion book of some small bird flourishes. I used walnut ink on 2x2 Canson Mi Teintes and used Arches for the structure. I still struggle with the tails not looking stupid.

Love your  work piece Marie. ;D. I guess it is some work that needs lot of skills. First all the calligraphy series and then the album/ or folder book.
And the idea of putting this to a mini/ or accordion  album ( That is what I call it) is again another challenging. I love doing 'Zine type" photo albums.
So this type of  limited series gives a very special presentations on many arts. I had used this as a favourite presentation series for my  photography too.
Bravo!!!! and well done.
( Only one-thing I guess  that is missing is your signature and the date.)
This small detail get me to the attention when I was going through several archives of  the scrap books of old penmans / masters they had recorded that details very clearly so that we can see thorough their progress.
So I guess  it is  something very important in some work to leave  that details.
