Fa La La La.....La? by windfalcon Fa La La La.....La? by windfalcon
This year, Solstice and her friends have decided to celebrate the winter holidays by participating in some holiday carols! Who better to sing songs than a group of birds, right?

Well, as the other birds learn, not all birds are equal when it comes to voice. Poor Solstice and her corvid friends seem perfectly happy rasping out forest versions of "Deck the Halls" while any bird with half a good ear flies for the hills! It seems those mourning doves are trying their hardest to listen politely, but the squirrels and fox can't quite hide their disapproval. Oh well, maybe next time Solstice can play an instrument instead?

As is tradition, this will be my holiday card this year. :) It's available through my DA print shop, so if you want to send a bit of cacophonous holiday cheer to those you love, you can!

Watercolor on cold-press paper. The original is 8X10 but the cards are 5X7.

This looks like a great page for a story book. I love it she looks so happy, and I'm impressed by anyone who gets that much control over water color

Thanks! I tried to get a fun little narrative in there, particularly with the boisterous gryphon and corvids :D

I wouldn't recommend taking lessons from tone deaf friends. I've never been sure if gryphons can sing. Splendid detail by the way. Merry Christmas.

Now its' academic: Griffons can do anything besides singing. I mean look the Squirrels and the poor fox. Seems that minimum one of the singers has no ear for music at all. At last, they try and they have a lot of fun.
