These are very nice, especially like the bulbul - the open design works very well here. Smart!

Both of these are lovely, simple warercolours. The bulbul edges the dove for me. Thanks for posting these, a pleasure to view work as good as this..

Both lovely but as others have said the bulbul is especially successful.
