Happy Back to ‘whatever it is you do on a regular basis’ after a nice long holiday weekend!
I recently did some “doodling” in my new art journal for Draw a Bird Day…
Then “washed” it with some watercolor.
These were just really quick little sketches done in roller ball pen late one night and then painted early the next morning (for some reason I got up at 4:30 am that day, so took advantage of some free time). If they look a little bit familiar, I drew them from two photos I had posted from the birds that visit our backyard: The Rose Breasted Grosbeak and the Brown Headed Cowbird.
I’m looking forward to seeing all the fun and truly artistic creations everyone shares!
Cheers & Hugs,
PS In honor of Laura and in memory of her recent loss of her beloved Penny, I sketched my first cat in my new art journal the other day. Laura was on my heart as I was thinking of her grief and loss. I just used a No. 2 pencil and followed some illustrative instructions from a new book I got called Drawing for the absolute beginner by Mark and Mary Willenbrink. This is my first try at this book, and I look forward to doing more to better understand techniques and values and perspective, etc. I’m such a jump-iner! I need to slow down and learn! Love ya Laura!
