Everyday matters Drawing challenge # 125

EDM # 125 reads  Draw a bird. This Bird was started off drawing from life but of course since it is spring the wrens are very frisky! Fortunately I snapped a photo before I started drawing. Sure enough, I barely got the body shape defined before the bird was off chasing a lady so I finished off this drawing later at home from the photo I took.

draw a birdI used watercolours, watercolour pencils, inktense pencils and pit pens over a foundation of gesso and tissue paper.

Hopefully I am getting back to the swing of drawing things. I had a goal this year to re-establish a regular habit of drawing and sharing the results here. It has been patchy to say the least.

  1. Oh, this is lovely Sharon. I really like the background effect too. The drawing habit does take a while I find, but on really busy days I have a set of little ‘exercise’ sketches and I repeat a couple of those, as I can scribble them anywhere.
