Lindisfarne Beasts: bird outline and tail

Happy holidays!  I hope you have a joyful and peaceful time, however and wherever you celebrate.

Just a quick update before I get back to my own preparations. Adding the colour to the birds is coming along nicely. I've done the outline strip, in Madeira 0511, for one bird:

Then his tail, in the same red:

The outline of the second bird:

And his tail too:

Now I need another bright colour for the necks and legs...


  1. Making great progress there!

    Happy Christmas to you and yours..

  2. My first thought was yellow but that's an awful lot of yellow against the gold. A green - either to go with the blue, or a yellow-ish green if you are going to add a little yellow?
