The Birds by Foozyschtuff The Birds by Foozyschtuff
20 x 17 inches
watercolor, color pencil, and coffee on paper
Unframed

This piece was inspired by the Hitchcock film. This scene is supposed to be reminiscent of the playground scene in which all the birds landed on the jungle gym. The model is Jasmine, who played a wonderful scared blonde for this painting.

Why thank you. My initial designs for the birds were more mean spirited. But I realized that the animals should not be scary, but rather they should just cause unease for the victim. It serves more as unintentional intimidation.

I'd like to know where you get your coffee because it has great psychodelic effects ;)

As usual your deviation is great. There are elements of your style realy like. The setting, for example, with a corner and wall with coffee stains.

My favorite is the little bird on her knee that looks so oblivious and friendly. Also, I like all the drawings of birds taped up all over the place. Your pictures always make me smile.

Oh!!! Thank you! The little orange bird on her knee is actually a character by my boyfriend, Adam. Check out his website and look at his film with the bird!

I can't really give the time reviewing this piece that it deserves. It is very well concieved and illustrated. It is certainly a different take on the subject matter. I don't think I have ever seen it put in this light before. The only thing that bugs me is her hand that she is lifting up. Looks a little strange.

What a great mix of different mediums. I really love all the tones in colors in this. Everything stands out so well. A fantastic piece:)

I hear that coffee is a very good medium to use. I really like watercolors and finally got my hands on some a couple of days ago. I'll have to try it out.

Hi! First off, Thanks so much for favoriting my art work. I really appreciate it.

Yeah, coffee is an interesting medium. It definitely has a life of its own bc it is an organic material. It changes consistency and its a different experience everytime I use it. I always add the coffee once i have gotten the rest of the piece out of the way. It gets sticky and depending on how much water you put in it, it changes forms.

Also, watercolors are great. Hopefully you will figure it out. It took me years to get it right.
