This little chap watched me bringing him and his friends to life.
He was hanging out at the Paris bird market when I snapped him. He looks like he was ‘papped’ with two guards on sentry duty!
I was painting a board of birds and other designs but these three fellas wanted to be kept together forever. So I had to erase the poor hunchbacked budgie from the corner (thank heaven for removable watercolour pigments) and paint in a background.
