Warbler work

April 5, 2018


Today I wasn’t feeling terribly well. Not sure if pollen is the problem, which there certainly is plenty floating around, or a virus. Coughing, low energy, almost missed my physical therapy appointment. So, I haven’t pushed forward with much drawing today.

What I did accomplish was changing the ugly wren start in the upper right corner to a frequent visitor to the suet cage:  Audubon’s Yellow Rumped Warbler. Without any color, it’s hard to tell. The Red Headed Sapsucker in the upper left corner still needs work. Once everything looks set in pencil, I’ll move to watercolor and colored pencil.

I’m actually finding it quite satisfying to work on wildlife images. With all my years of watching birds, I’ve not really attempted drawing any (except a pelican). Maybe they’re a new muse? Time will tell.

    I know I’m not supposed to look, but I can’t resist! Its looking fabulous Gale, such a great start, lovely drawings – you can tell you’re enjoying them. Sorry to hear you’re not well, hopefully the pollen will clear and you will feel better soon.

      I gave up trying to hide it. Since it was posted on FB, it’s fair game for comments. It’s nice to know you’re enjoying it so far. More to come. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day. 😉
