In case you missed it, last month I asked my followers to vote for top three favourite SA garden birds, which I will then illustrate as part of my downloadable wall art collection. I also randomly selected a winner from the voters, who wins a set of downloadable illustrations from either the soon-to-be-birds, or my SA flowers. To the lucky winner - congratulations! Thank you to everyone who voted - it was great fun! Make sure to sign up for my monthly newsletter, so you'll always be the first to know about sales, competitions, giveaways and all my latest news.
I'm pleased to announce SA's top three favourite garden birds (at least according to my humble little survey):
In first place, we have a tie between the Southern Double-collared Sunbird and the Crested Barbet. Coming in in third place, is the Cape Robin-Chat ("A humbling experience..." Says Mr Robin, who had a convincing lead for most of the month!).
Funnily enough, these three beauties are my personal favourites (I swear the vote wasn't rigged!), so I really look forward to getting to work on the illustrations. I'm planning on jumping in within the next couple of weeks - make sure to follow me on Instagram or Facebook to see the work in progress!
The original SA flowers are still available for purchase, either individually or at a yummy discounted rate for all three (because who'd want to break up a happy family?). Learn more about digitally downloadable art, and see the work-in-progress of my watercolour and pen SA flowers here.
