Animal friends - by Shell

We were blessed with lots of animal friends when I was growing up. My very own was 'Uncle Feathers'. I got him when I was about 9 years old, from my teacher who was breeding them. I was sure that I wanted a blue budgie. I got the name out of a book I'd been reading, though I can't remember which book it was now.

Aww, I used to have a budgie who looked the same as Uncle Feathers, expect his name was Hamlet and his girlfriend was called Ophelia...
This budgie is just great Shell...your use of watercolours is just amazing, and inspiring!

i remember uncle feathers..such a gorgeous character he was, forever full of chatter and happiness. Shell, your mastery of the watery world of watercolours is growing with each picture! The patterning technique & layers of tone are inspiring.. shall have to try my hand at it! Such a beautiful memory too <3
