Pregnant Bluebird


bird June

Some of us missed the actual Draw A Bird Day on April 8th and decided to celebrate it again on May 8, and on the eighth of every month.   Well, I think I was all birded out last May 8, lol.

Did I draw birds all week that week?  Maybe.  I still love them, but I’m not sure I’ve drawn one since!   So I’m posting one I drew and painted that week in my journal. It never made it to the blog, as it was rather…..out of proportion. So I decided to call it pregnant. hehe.   Hmm, and I’m pretty sure it’s a male too, so…..haha.

Does anyone want to carry on with Draw a Bird Day on the 8th of every month? I may join in, but can’t promise it! Definitely will do it next April though.  This one’s for you, Kirkistan.  Peace and a soaring wind to all!

  1. I like your pregnant bluebird! At first I thought you had used some collage paper for the brown color on his breast. Then I see that you added texture with a ballpoint pen? Anyway, I like it! I think I will need to pass on creating a bird each month. I still enjoy this feathered friend but I am ready to try other subjects too! 😊🎨🌈

    1. I don’t blame you a bit, Jill. I may not draw a bird for a year if I was you! The whole thing was done with Micron pen and I think the color was my actual wc tube paint. Boy, my memory is bad, it’s only been a month ago, lol. I’m glad you like my pregnant birdie. hehe.

  2. I’ve drawn a bird just in time – about to post it. I also missed the official draw a bird day in April and didn’t realise you were planning on carrying on every month. Birds are awesome so I’ll try and join in again on July 8th.

  3. Hey isn’t that the greatest thing about art – you can make a pregnant male blue bird! 🙂 Maybe he’s just a little chunky… I rather LOVE it! I love the swatches of color on the left too – something just wonderful about it


  4. Nice birdie! A cat would look at him and think “omg super tender feast” though. He’d best keep an eye out.

    Ha, I can understand feeling birded out. I want to stick to the resolution, but this month I did a doodle page that, while it definitely has some birds (one of which is quite prominent), also has a lot of other stuff.

    1. Thanks! I used to do portraits too, and I got portrait-ed out, also. I may do another one soon but it’s been over two months since I last did one, I think. I go through subject spurts lol. Trying to figure out what my “thing” is. Who knows.


  5. I forgot it too… 😞 I´d love to continue, but there´s so much new right now I´d probably forget it again. Anyway – I love your pregnant bluebird. But maybe it´s just cold and he had to vapor…? Or he wants to impress some lady? Glad he made it to your blog!!! 🐦

  6. I think your bluebird is fluffing up for warmth and all the fluffing went to its belly. It could happen! It is super cute :-). The colours are great and I really dig it when you use ink.

    I’m going to keep trying for once a month bird drawings. Life happens, so sometimes, like this time, I may be late.

  7. I missed draw a bird day, but I have a bird in mind…maybe tomorrow? I like the tradition, we should keep trying. Your bluebird may have eaten a bit too much for lunch, but what a great face.
