Sparrows

While hubby made dinner last night I had a few minutes to do a quick sketch of some feathered friends. The birds were drawn on Strathmore #80lb drawing paper using Derwent Artist pencils and Prismacolor Verithins. The birds are inspired from Kaaren Poole’s Drawing Birds with Colored Pencils.

Cheers!

I’ve been spending most of my free time painting house walls rather than drawing but I still managed to sneak in a few minutes to sketch this little guy. I am fortunate that I have not only seen one about my neighborhood but heard his fun call.

This is done with Derwent Artist Pencils on Strathmore #80 drawing paper. The under layers were dissolved with a colorless blending marker and then more pencil marks were added to give texture to the feathers.

Cheers!
