I have met so many warm and wonderful people since I started blogging about three weeks ago. Many of you are photographers, and your work inspires me daily. I was very fortunate to come across an amazing photography blog about a week ago, when I saw one of my favorite birds in a really nice closeup shot. Mike Bizeau of that site was kind enough to give me permission to draw his photo.
Here’s the link: http://naturehasnoboss.com/2014/12/29/white-breasted-nuthatch/comment-page-1/#comment-8611
Isn’t it cool? According to hub, the nuthatch is one of the few (maybe the only?) birds who can actually walk down a tree, while most birds walk up. They get all the bugs the other ones miss! The drawing actually took me almost an hour to do with a Polychromos Cool Grey V in my Strathmore 400 Series art journal. I need to learn how to sketch more and draw less before busy season sweeps me away with the tide!
Looking forward to drawing another bird for you tomorrow. Think boys of summer, and you might just guess it!
