Aesop: The Thrush and the Fowler by bumble-boo Aesop: The Thrush and the Fowler by bumble-boo
Watercolour and gouache.

One of many more to come. :)

"A THRUSH was feeding on a myrtle-tree and did not move from it because its berries were so delicious. A Fowler observed her staying so long in one spot, and having well bird-limed his reeds, caught her. The Thrush, being at the point of death, exclaimed, "O foolish creature that I am! For the sake of a little pleasant food I have deprived myself of my life.""

I love colors and patterns you used here. I also love the story behind it, I tend to do that literally and metaphorically.. I also think that picture well represents the story :)

I enjoy folklore about birds. I really love the picture in contrast to the story. The story is sad but I like how the picture is very mellow. <3 Still love your colors :P
