Alpha Challenge - M for Mavis

I promised myself I would enter every fortnight...
I've not been well and have not been up to much.
Thank goodness for thinking ahead.  Thank goodness for pre scheduled posts.  I wouldn't have got through the last week otherwise.
I have a page half done...

I chose Mavis - the song thrush...

I like the background - gesso and paint pen.

I like the tree trunk - watercolour pencils

Less satisfied with the bird - again watercolour pencils.  When I am feeling better I will probably go back and work on it a bit more.  I'll also add some more details to keep the page in line with my others.

Bring on the next letter and some energy to join in again!


  1. Sorry to hear you are feeling rough Laura, I like your bird!

  8. What a fabulous find! Did you already know that Mavis was a song thrush? Your picture is fabulous.
    I wish you well and renewed energy :0) Mo

    1. I think I did know somewhere in the back of my head... maybe it was a cross word clue that stuck in my mind...

  9. Love Mavis, I had forgotten the thrush was called that! Fab page

  10. I think it's brilliant - it looks like a bird in a tree. If I tried that, mine would be a mess, so well done on your drawing!!

  11. Oh Laura, I am sorry that you haven't been well sweetie. You have done yourself proud again with your beautiful drawings as your Mavis is wonderful! When I saw the title of your post I wondered who Mavis was, now I have learnt something haha! Thank you and get well soon from The Craft Barn xxx

  12. Wowers girl, this is amazing! I wish I had some of your talent!
    I'm sorry to hear you are not feeling well though. I hope you'll get better soon.
    Hugs! xx
