Beautiful Oops

This drawing is of an aerial view of a bird flying. I used colored pencil and markers. I saw something in the ink that remind me of the long neck of a bird. I went from there and added wings. This made the bird look like it was in flight, so thats when i decided to add a sky with puffy clouds as the background. Some composition techniques I used were formal and informal balance. I used formal balance having the bird centered in the middle of the page, I used informal balance with the clouds scattered in the background. I wasnt sure what angle to make the bird, I had it standing up at first but then decided to make it flying last minute as I was making the background. I have always loved drawing birds so I thought this would be a good choice for this project. I have always wanted to fly, so this project has a personal connection to me. If I could go back and change anything I would've taken more time on it.
