I used a watercolor wash on Bristol board for the background with light crosshatching with a small brush. The white areas on the birds had a resist applied to keep the watercolor from affecting that areas of the artwork.Birds are done with a brush and finished with a small nib.
From a photo made in Florida back in 1973.
