Tawny Frog-mouths are one of the most humorous looking birds on the planet, they have a great look and fantastic expression in their faces. I'd been wanting a chance to draw them for years, so when I got a commission that asked to depicted an old married couple as a pair of birds I reckon that they would be perfect candidates and I jumped to the chance to final draw and paint these amazing looking birds. Oddly enough as far as the facial expression of these to go I really didn't need to change them at all (that is really what they look like) I simple added the hats and slippers and that was that. I really loved them and was sorry to sell them, very fun and one of my favourite birds.
