This pattern is a collection of birds created as part of a set of patterns and the first in the set to be coloured. Busily showing off their fabulous feathers and perfect plumage they each find their place in the sky.
The patterns use a coherent style, drawing on folk art patterning and graphic techniques across the character groups. The stylised nature of each hand drawn character allows it to fit its specific placement in the digitally composed pattern.
A carefully selected colour palette is heavily detailed with layers of texture to compliment the strong, simple outline of the drawings.
