Can’t believe a whole month has gone by since the last Draw A Bird Day (reprise) was celebrated on July 8! I hope both participants and viewers enjoyed creating / checking out the bird art! Here is the post from A-Wing and A-Way that informed us all of the official Draw A Bird Day holiday on April 8.
This month, I plan to do a recap blog post in a couple of days with a link to everyone’s bird art work. I don’t want to miss anyone, so please add a comment on this blog post if you’d like to be included in that recap!
The photo I found for this drawing was very helpful, as I wanted to see how detailed I could get with my little bird this time. Lyn Topinka of http://www.northwestbirding.com was kind enough to give me permission to use her photo, which can be found at this link. The kindness and generosity of photographers and artists alike continues to amaze me. Thank you so much, Lyn, for sharing your photos with the world on your site! This photo shows so much detail that it became a road map for my pen lines. It is a joy to draw with a photo such as this.
It’s Saturday, and summer is beginning to wind down. Make the most of it in whatever way will refresh you best! Peace and happy chirping to all today!
