Mexican Artist Dips Wooden Birds Into Watercolor To Recreate The Look Of Local Birds

Mexican designer Moisés Hernández has found a perfect balance between nature and machines. His new elegant series Immersed Birds is machine-milled but hand-painted and it looks absolutely marvelous.

“We [project assistant – Harmonie Begon] made soft and continuous shapes milled with CNC technology contrasted with handmade painting done by immersion in colored water,” Hernández said. “This technique of painting allows to achieve an interesting texture of intersections and transparency made by layers of color that resemble the plumage of birds.”

The three minimalistic decorative figures include a toucan, hummingbird, and Mexican quetzal, all of which can be seen flying around Mexico.

This is a wonderful example of how "simplicity" and "elegance" go hand-in-hand together.
