Thanks to this post from A-Wing And A-Way, I recently learned that April 8 is Draw a Bird Day. I needed to make a card for my mom’s birthday, and she’d requested a bluebird. So Monday night, while watching a rerun of the O’s Opening Day win (woot!), I got out my Derwent watercolor pencils and went to town.
I had such a good time doing this, and was happy (for the most part) with how it turned out. It also felt good to dash back into realism for a change. Hehe, a little dose of reality never hurt anyone. Right? I miss drawing from nature. Looking forward to maybe having a chance to do some more of that after busy season winds down.
April showers are busy bringing May flowers out my way, and I hope Lady Spring is waving her magic wand where you are, too.
