Puffty Tufty

I found a scrap of wrinkled MiTientes and felt like painting with gouache. I decided to make a bird, and I like the look of black and white on gray, so I searched for a black and white bird. I came upon the Tufted Jay, native to Mexico. I thought its little hairdo was so cute! I didn't feel like making a drawing first, so I just started painting away. It resulted in an awkward-looking bird, but there are things I like about it.

I want to make more birdies now! But I have trouble coming up with natural looking poses.
